Brian Lackey: Success! Thank again for the great diy videos.
86johnnyg: I just changed my tie rod on my 05 GMC Sierra when I jerk my steering wheel
side to side it ends up going side ways even when my tires are straight?
Brian Lackey: I'm about to perform this exact repair but I don't have a tie rod removal
tool. Couldn't I simply hammer the outer tie rod stud downward to remove it
from the steering knuckle. Being as I am replacing it anyway, what could it
hurt? Or, is this part so tightly installed that I would more than likely
"mushroom" the stud and create a need for it to be cut off?
Jimmy Bonez: what kind of grease do i use on the fittings? and how much do i pump in?
how will i know when i've pumped enough grease in?
BrodekDHE: Inner Tie Rod is 36mm
aaroncrabbe: Mine required a 36mm wrench. I really enjoy your videos and if i lived in
the good old U S of A I would definitely buy my parts from you!
1A Auto Parts: @Turco949 That price sounds about right. To get the inner tie rods off the
outer tie rods need to come off anyway. Even though they are good, if the
vehicle is getting older and has some miles on it, the outer tie rods are
worth replacing too, since they are already off. It will save you money in
the long run. You will also need to get an alignment after this is done.
Hope this helps you out 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
i3sm3: Is this the same for a 06 Chevy Malibu?
Luis Martinez: do you put grease in the inner and outer rods? how do you do that? is there
a special way to do it
DudeWithaPage: when one front end part goes. might as well get at them all while youre
john mills: Thanks for the info. I will be doing this same fix to my 1998 K 1500 Z-71
Diego Gomez: Question I did change the tie rod and the tire still moving a little bit
it's anything else I need to change?
1A Auto Parts: We'll keep this in mind if we end up doing that repair in the future. We
currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this repair.
1A Auto Parts: Thanks for watching. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: It would be easier if they both need to be replaced.
jaxon258: Nice video, but the lug nuts for chevy trucks are torqued to 140
dread4life30: Besides the movement of the tire.what sounds does bad inner/outter tie rod
makes ...i have 95 Tahoe it vibrates when i speed up
1A Auto Parts: This assembly is actually two seperate pieces, we just took it out in one
piece instead of taking the outer tie rod end off.
1A Auto Parts: You should replace any steering components that are worn.
1A Auto Parts: Whenever you do any replacement of a suspension part, you need to have the
1A Auto Parts: If you're just replacing the hub bearing assembly you shouldn't have to.
1A Auto Parts: If there's play in them, they should be replaced.
Allen Hill: Very nice video. Very helpful.
THETGROVER: Can you buy just the inner and outer without buying the hole kit? and how
can u tell they are bad?
HIDanchorage: Howdy... We have a bad tie rod (I believe inner) it's doing the tell tell
clunking noise across bumps... I'm curious do you feel if your gonna
replace a inner you should always also replace the outer? Also, we are on a
budget here obviously, so. Do you feel you should always do both sides (All
4 ends) if your doing one? Can I just do the bad one and call it good?
Thanks for your help, and by the way, EXCELLENT video!
Joe Hurst: 92 silverado 4x4 ext. cab: i got the truck at auction. when the wheels are
straight, the steering wheels turns 2 1/2 turns to the right and 1 1/2
turns to the left. i never had this problem and dont know what to do. any
stupidstt: My outer tie rod didn't have a grease fitting, I thought there was a cover
on it I had to remove, so I tried pounding it off. Apparently it was the
actual bottom of the tie rod..... Any ways, I need another new tie rod. Are
the new tie rods without grease fitting okay without them? Or does some
special drilling needed to put old ones in?
kraenjay: great video. Your video shows the entire inner to outer end as one
assembly. However, I cannot locate the same assembly. I had purchased the
outer ends for my 2003 Chevy Tracker, 2WD, and now need to change inner.
Where do they sell the entire assembly? Nor does the inner end the stores
sell look like the one you have on this video. Please assist me on this.
jamie starcher: will try to give feed back if any thing is found. changing out tie rod ends
, upgrading to a 1 inch shaft and 30% larger inner tie rod. to see if that
helps anything. thank you
alejandroxx13: i have a 2004 silverado when i hit a bump in the road my steering wheel
shakes is that do to the tie rods being damaged or is it something else
Turco949: Really helpful video! Thank you for sharing. I am considering doing this
myself but still not certain if it would be worth the hassle. Does $250 US
sound reasonable which includes parts (Moog inner tie rods only),
installation and alignment? Also, if the mechanic stated the outer tie rods
were fine, why would they need to be replaced at the same time since from
what I have heard, typically the inner rod ends go bad?
xXxSTENCHxXx: is the tie rod the cause of what they call the death wobble?
Brodderick Freeney: my inner tie rods didnt have any dust boots on them. is that necessary,
will it be fine without them, where do i get some rubber boots for them.
theyre moog tie rods.
1A Auto Parts: The nut on the inner tire rod will keep the outer tie rod secure once it is
1A Auto Parts: @HIDanchorage If you have to replace the inner tie rod I would also replace
the outer one while your in there. If it were me I would replace all 4
pieces,usually the other ones aren't to far behind to let go. Sometimes
it's easier while you have all of the tools out. You're also going to need
an alignment, it's another reason to kinda of take care of all of them
while you're in there. An alignment alone is usually around $75.00. Hope
this helps you out.
rinselman: Awesome, thank you! I need to do this and this video is golden. Question
though, if both tie rod ends are secured, how does the tie rod get adjusted
during alignment? Does the outer end have to be knocked back out of the
steering knuckle, adjusted via the jam nut, and then put back in?
Alfa Dog: This video gave me confidence. The only thing not covered was the r&r of
the boot, which was easy. I stuck a nailset into the OEM clamp's loop and
twisted it until it loosened enough. Use a regular hose clamp, or to reuse
the original, flatten out the bends a bit to make the clamp bigger, and it
will clip back onto the nipple on reinstall. Then use wire cutters to
squeeze the loop together. Also, if your boots have breathers, remember to
install the breather tube before you put the clamp on.
1A Auto Parts: @TobeNuts4U Thank you for visiting our auto repair channel. Have a great
1A Auto Parts: When you replace the tie rod ends you should measure and make the length of
the ones that came out, and set the new ones up to them as close as
possible. Hope this helps out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: Yes an alignment should take care of it. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: Some of them do not have grease fittings. We carry tie rod ends for many
different types of vehicles. Check us out online at 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: It may be the same or a similar procedure. Hope this helps you out.
Greg Jordon: Great video - I changed out my tie rods on both sides but now I have play
in the steering that wasn't there before. Any ideas on why this is going on?
barfyspitz: thank you so much for these videos. I have a 92 silverado. when I wiggle
the drive side steer, the steering link and tie rods on the passenger side
all move. Do I need to replace them all? Are the torque specs 65 ftpds?
1A Auto Parts: If they are bad, you may feel a lot of movement in them while you wiggle
them with your hand. Depending on the year/make/model we may have them
seperate for your application. You can visit our website @ 1aauto.com or
call Tony @ 866-403-3393
Mark YremogtnoM: wow is it really that easy to change out a inner tire rod? Because I was
going to have GoodYear do it for me and they wanted almost 500.00 bucks.
vince appice: great vid,and thanks for posting....how much force is safe to use when
removing the inner tie rod? i was told using too much force could damage
the rack/pinion,can heat be used if necessary? thought the factory used red
loctite on the threads which could make it a bear to remove? thanks
Samiches: Nice 66' GTO!
