One of the car steering tie rod parts
Tie rod end is a part of auto steering. It connects to steering tie rod through spiral connection with rack end, providing better sense of control for drivers. Tie rod end is located near the wheels, and the position is called outer tie rod end. Rack end that is close to inside is called inner tie rod end. The main function of tie rod end is to push and pull tires, directly affecting stability of control, safety, and tire use life. When driving, tires will bump due to uneven road, but rack end is mainly fixed to car body, and tie rod end can exert its vertical and horizontal steering function.
Reminder: Worn tie rod end can cause drifting, unstable steering, and severe tire damage. After installing new tie rod end, wheel alignment must be done.
