New Version 2!
Our outer tie rods will correct and reduce bumpsteer on lowered cars due to lower arm geometry.
The outer tie rod design with the taller shank relocates the pivot point, which also reduces binding and leading to premature failure.
The version 2 utilizes industry's highest quality, Aurora Bearing Precision 3 piece PTFE rod ends.
Difference between china made rod ends vs. ours is the materials used especially the bearings. Most common failure on the tie rods are the bearings.
Aurora bearings use a PTFE bonding process which other manufacturer do not offer, since these are used by the U.S Government.
The overall shank length has been extended by 5.0mm from previous version to allow for better arm geometry.
Nylon lock nuts are included to prevent backing out.
You also get a wider range of adjustment compared to the OEM tie rods.
Note: These outer tie rods require S14 inner tie rods. Great upgrade for S13's.
*Please do not use an impact gun to tighten the nut on the shank. Please torque to 55-60ft/lbs.

V.2 S13/S14 tie rod ends with aurora bearings.
These are some sturdy looking tie rods right out of the box. Beautiful U.S made bearings, nice lock nuts, and a very race spec look underneath. Not to mention quick shipping! I would for sure spend the little bit extra to get these purpose built, bad ass outter tie rod ends.
