The tie rod is a small ball-and-socket joint used as part of the steering linkage.
Caring for the tie rod is part of the lube, oil & filter maintenance that you’re supposed to have done at least four times a year. It involves pumping fresh grease into the ball joints, tie-rod ends, and other rotating components in the steering and suspension system. Failure to have the suspension and steering lubed regularly can cause the components to wear and eventually fail.
When your tie rod is failing you may feel like your front end alignment is off. The steering might shake and feel loose. You could also have excessive vibration that comes and goes at various speeds. If you experience any of these signs, it’s important to have your vehicle checked to see if you may need a tie rod replacement. For your own safety, you wouldn’t want the tie rods to break while you’re driving.
When you need a tie rod replacement, bring your car to us. Our certified technicians will perform the work needed and get you safely back on the road with strong, safe tire rods, steering, and suspension.
