Icon5 Tie Rod Ends?

Hey Guys, again...

I have a 97 Prelude SH.

I just replaced the inner and outer tie rod ends on the passenger side. I took it to get aligned.

The shop said that they couldn't align it, the outer tie rod end was too long (which I noticed during installation). So they tried to order the correct one, they ordered from 5 different suppliers and they all shipped the wrong version.
The shop was able to get the alignment very close with the wrong one, but they advised me to get the correct one asap.

Are the SH models' tie rod ends that hard to find? Where does everyone else buy theirs?

Thanks!
Leo

Re: Tie Rod Ends?

The same thing happened to me base models Outer tie rods are longer than SH ones, just go to the dealer and get some for an SH. For me the auto parts store gave me the wrong ones too.

inner tie rods are the same for base and SH

Re: Tie Rod Ends?

i have a 95, but my tie rod on my drivers side, that i replaced, fits perfectly on the passenger side... but says left on it.... and packaging says 95 Prelude Si Front Drivers side.......... so since the bend is backwards... it rubs my rim when driving. but ill be fixing that in about a week or so, it only rubs on hard left turns, like pulling out of the driveway, or into a parking spot.... so as long as i dont do those things often ill be fine lol, and still no alignment, and i had the entire suspension off on the drivers side, and half on the passenger side lol
