Outter Tie Rod Ends? Brand Selection?
#1283013 - 07/21/06 04:51 AM

I did a search and a quick skim...didn't find anything on whether brands make a difference...

Judging by what the outer tie rod end is I would imagine different brands last longer/shorter but as far as handling goes I don't think it makes a difference...am I wrong?

I have a spare passenger's side one ... brand new, never installed. Got it from BAT actually. It's yours for $15 shipped ... BAT is $18.50 + S&H.

The biggest difference is some aftermarket tie rods are greasable. I would personally go with moog or trw but thats just personal preferance. Moog would be my first choice good luck

IMO spicer makes the best balljoints/tie rod ends.
