How Do Tie Rod Ends Work?

Tie rods are vital for precise steering in all vehicles. They are basically the arm of your power steering rack, and make steering in combination with a steering pump effortless. A functional tie rod connects the suspension and steering system to the front wheels so that the wheels turn accurately as the steering wheel is turned. This means you need to use less effort to get your car to turn.

How Do You Know If a Tie Rod End Is Bad?

There are several very noticeable things you can watch out for when determining whether or not your tie rod end is bad. Below are some common symptoms of a faulty tie rod end:

  • Steering wheel vibrates or shakes
  • Poor front end alignment
  • Steering wheel feels loose
  • Abnormal tyres
  • Loud, unusual noises

One of the primary jobs of the tie rod end is to keep things solid on the front end of your vehicle. This includes the tie rod end, steering rack, wheels and tyres, stabiliser bars, struts, and other components that all factor into the vehicle’s alignment. When the tie rod is worn down, it will become loose and cause the front end of the vehicle to fall out of alignment.

The tie rod ends of any vehicle provide stability and allow your car, ute or SUV to drive smoothly down the road. When they wear out, they tend to break very quickly. If you notice a problem with the way your car drives, like those described above, you need to get a replacement fast.
