I need tie rod ends for my 3rd gen 4ws Si

Where can I get tie rod ends that don't have fitment issues for my 1991 Prelude Si 4ws. I know Honda doesn't make them anymore, because they told me so today.

Inner or outer? I just bought some inner tie rods from Autozone for $20 each (Duralast Brand with Lifetime Warranty) and my outers for $8.12 each on Amazon.com. (PartsMaster Brand, same as what Advance Auto Parts sells) Oreilly the outers for $11.99 each. So don't let anyone try to sucker you into paying $100 each for those Beck & Arnley ones.

Thank you tonemiester! I was going to call all my local auto parts places, but I figured someone would be able to tell me the best place and the best brands on here pretty quick. I'm just going to do both inner and outer all the way around so I don't have to worry about any of them anytime in the near future. So, this will solve my problems! Then I can get my alignment at the Honda dealer done.

Re: I need tie rod ends for my 3rd gen 4ws Si

You are welcome! Gald to help! I am doing all 4 as well. I found a Groupon for a Lifetime alignment at Meineke for $54... Going to go with them. I usually use Firestone for alignments, but they wouldn't install my tie rods for me. I usually do all my own work, but I am in desperate need for new tires and I only have part of tomorrow to get new tires, install tie rods and get the alignment. It's going to cost me $110 to install all 4.

Becareful because the out tie rods for the rear 4WS models specifically have been discontinued.

So make sure that when you ask about your tie rod ends, that they actually have them in stock and that they are correct.

The 2WS models are readily available not to be confused with the 4WS tie rod ends.
