Popular Questions Asked
What happens when tie rod ends go out?
Worn tie rod ends can be felt by shaking or vibration through your steering wheel when you are driving. Tie rods and particularly outer tie rod ends are subject to both movement and vibration as well as dirt, water and road grime that lead to slop and play in the tie rod end. Inner tie rod ends are shielded by a rubber rack end boot so these are a little more resilient but these too suffer from movement and wear.
Can you drive with a broken tie rod?
A tie rod will wear for a significant amount of time and vary rarely do they break. You can drive on a worn tie rod but your steering will be inoperative if the tie rod end is broken.
How much will it cost to fix a tie rod?
The average cost of an outer tie rod end is between $30 and $60 and labour to replace a single side should not be more than an hour. Once changed however you would require a wheel alignment to ensure your wheels track straight and don't contribute to excess tyre wear. While the tie rod is being changed your mechanic will check for excess wear in ball joints, steering knuckle and the steering rack and will recommend replacement if needed.
