Tie Rod End

The outer tie rod connects the steering gear to the steering knuckle via the inner tie rod.

Symptoms of Wear or Failure

  • Vehicle may pull to one side
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Steering wheel off center

Related Repair Advice

  • We recommend that tie rod ends be replaced in pairs (both inner or both outer)
  • Replacing one or more tie rod ends will change the alignment settings. We recommend a four-wheel alignment if tie rod ends are replaced.
