Tie rod ends are connectors between the steering gear and the wheel. The job of the tie rod end is to ensure the wheels are aligned. It provides the adjustment for wheel alignment that keeps the tires from wearing out on the inner and outer edges. Tie rod ends don’t simply go bad because they were manufactured on a specific date and their time has merely expired, they go bad because of normal wear and tear. Because of their importance and high usage, tie rod ends should be inspected regularly.
Some warning signs to look out for are: excessive tire wear, machine pulling to the left or right, shaking of the steering wheel, and the vehicle cannot be aligned. When you turn your steering wheel, the steering gear is turned, which turns the wheels. This steering gear is connected to your wheels by way of the tie rod ends, which have the responsibility of keeping each wheel balanced and aligned. The tie rod ends adjust the wheel so that the tires do not develop excess wear on the inside or the outside.
