Re: BB2 tie rods - advice

pretty sure they don't even make aftermarket tie rods, only OEM. even if aftermarket ones were made, they DEF wouldn't increase performance since it has zero relation to the engine. nor would it improve anything like handling or anything like that.

and what exactly do you mean they're frozen?

Ummm, i think youre wrong. I have seen a couple aftermarket tie rods by Megan Racing and Neuspeed.

My friend bought tein tie rods for his 240 and he said it increases turning radius and steering response which makes sense..

&are tie rods and tie bars the same thing?

no they are not. lol.

and unless the tie rod end is slightly longer then original, i couldn't see anything being better then stock. and if you happen to find one larger then stock, you will probably find out that its not better. i would guess that tires would start rubbing, or you would have MAJOR alignment problems. Usually OEM = Better

i dont see how they would help the turning radius, unless the car was lowered and angles are different and need to be corrected?..which would be done with an alignment anyway. secondly, you would want to decrease or tighten the turning radius, not increase it. i would think the only way to change the turning radius is to replace or modify the steering rack

I dont see how they would help steering response either

a lot of tie rods for old cars are made by aftermarket companies to OEM specifications. some brands are 'OE' brand, moog, beck/arnley

i think your friend got fooled

Re: BB2 tie rods - advice

240 guys add spacers which pretty much makes the tie rod longer. This gives them the ability to have increased steering angle. Main purpose is for drifting..
Have you never watched a d1 series and wondered how the front wheels look like they are turned at almost 90 degrees?

Check out the right front tire at the drifts initiation
