Inner Tie Rod End
An inner tie rod end is an essential part of a vehicle’s steering system. One of its ends is attached to a front wheel spindle, while the other one is connected to a steering gear box or a steering rack.
A tie rod end is designed to survive the test of time, however, just like any other part, it is prone to wear and tear, so it must be replaced from time to time. When failing, it will provide a number of warning signs, including, but not limited to, uneven wear of the tires, an incorrect steering wheel position, and pulling of the vehicle’s body to one of the sides.
Inner tie rod end replacement
- It is always a good idea to replace both inner and outer tie rod ends at the same time.
- A four-wheel alignment is recommended if a tie rod end is replaced.
