Tie-Rod

Is there any specific brand that may be better for a lude, or are all tie-rods the same whether they are from an auto parts store...etc.?

Re: Tie-Rod

I recently had bad experience with aftermarket. wasted $85 on an alignment because I had to replace the aftermarket with OEM honda parts.

Re: Tie-Rod

Ended up going with Moog since that was what I was able to find. On Memorial Day I planned a couple hours to quickly get these things switched out. The tie-rods, however, had different plans.

I went to my buddies house to spend the time with them through a torrential downpour that was going on. After a few minutes of chit chat I went to the garage to work on switching them out. The first side (passenger) was easy enough and took about 45 minutes to an hour to complete. The tie-rod tool that I bought was worthless as I think that it was defective and it is going back today.

After the first side was complete I ate some food and went back to finish in 30 minutes (my estimated time). Unfortunately the nut that held the outer tie-rod on was RUSTED on TIGHT! After a couple hours of struggling with it and trying to get PB Blaster to help me I asked my friend if he had any specialty tools. He had a few suggestions and came out to help with it. Tool after tool went down swinging and after an hour we switched to pipe wrenches. After 20 more minutes that job was done!

A complete difference in ride that I can feel. Bumps feel cleaner, and there is no noises when I hit bumps now. So glad that fiasco is over. Now I have to get new boots to put on there because the drivers side boot is split and the passenger side is missing one end.

Re: Tie-Rod

Always, always, always spray those parts with the pb, wd or what not the night before if you can. If not give it at least some time to 'creep' into the crevices.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
