Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with this replacement front outer tie rod end for all 2005 to 2014 S197 Mustangs. We're gonna look at the benefits of replacing your front outer tie rods, how much these will cost, and what you're looking at install wise, which is a two out of three wrenches on the scale. The replacement front outer tie rod end is going to be a good option for the S197 owner that's looking to replace some worn out tie rods. Tie rods are an important piece to the suspension puzzle, and they're not a static piece. They support areas that are under constant movement, and they take a lot of abuse. Naturally, they're gonna need some maintenance. Tie rods connect the center link to the steering knuckle. They work with the ball joints to allow the car to steer left and right, even as it's traveling down the road and even as the wheel's moving up and down responding to uneven surfaces in the road. The outer tie rods are connected to the steering knuckle that actually turns the front wheel. The steering knuckle has the upper and lower ball joints that it pivots on, so you can see how important these are. If your tie rods are worn out, you're gonna notice symptoms like wandering or shaky steering and possibly even uneven tire wear. A direct replacement like this one right here is going to solve those issues for you. Now I wouldn't say that this is an upgrade, but it's more of just a regular replacement piece. These are sold individually. Usually if you replace one side, you should replace the other at the same time. You're looking at a forged housing that's heat treated for strength since these do see a lot of abuse like I mentioned earlier. These do have a cover plate design which means a full-ball stud that's between the upper and lower bearings to eliminate lash. This design is known to give just the right amount of pre-load which gives you the right steering effort. As far as price, the individual outer tie rod's gonna cost just over $20. Like I said, you should replace both at the same time. So you're looking at a little over $40 at the end of the day. I gave the install for this one a two out of three wrenches. Everything's straightforward, but if you don't know what you're looking at, it might get a little tricky. It is a little time consuming, so that's why I gave it a two. You can plan on spending a few hours per side and needing a handful of basic tools. As usual, a lift would really help you out here, but a jack and stands will do just fine. You need to take the front wheel off to get to the tie rod. Overall, you're looking at removing the retaining nut on the end of the old tie rod, making sure to turn the jam nut and the arm at the same time so you don't undo your alignment, and using a rubber mallet to hammer out the tie rod end. This will free the end, and then you can just spin it counterclockwise to get it off. The new tie rod end then installs by just threading it on and getting it in the same position the old one was in. The same thing here, you just turn the jam nut and the arm at the same time one full turn. You can use a rubber mallet to insert the new tie rod and press it into place. After that, it's just a matter of reinstalling the retaining nut and tightening the jam nut and getting your wheel back on. It's never a bad idea to have your alignment checked after the install. Wrapping things up here, this is a direct replacement outer tie rod end that will help keep your Mustang steering correctly. It's a very important and impactful component of the suspension. It's subject to a lot of wear and tear, so it's a piece that should be replaced regularly. It's budget friendly and it's not difficult to install. As always, you can check it out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improve Steering. If you're experiencing shaky steering or if your car vibrates or wanders down the road, it may be time to replace those old, worn out tie rods. Installing a new replacement OPR outer tie rod will greatly improve your Mustang's steering and ride quality.

Superior Construction. The replacement OPR Front Outer Tie Rod Housing is forged and then heat-treated to obtain the most desirable grain structure for unequaled strength and durability. Featuring a patented cover-plate design, that sandwiches the full-ball stud between the upper and lower bearings to eliminate axial clearance “lash”, this design consistently produces just the right amount of preload, providing proper steering effort over the life of the part.

Premium Seals. The replacement OPR Tie Rod Seals are made from a premium polychloroprene compound that can easily withstand dirt, debris, abrasion and temperature extremes for an extended life span.

Application. This Replacement OPR Outer Tie Rod End is designed to be a direct fit replacement for the 2005 to 2014 Mustangs including V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. Sold individually.

Better than OEM

Good quality compared to the OEMs, they are easy to install. Make sure to have some PB blaster on hand, and don't mess with the nut or you're gonna have to get an alignment done.

    Stock tie rods were shot!

    The Mustang outer tie rods suck from the factory. If you are driving a Mustang with 50,000 or more miles it's most likely time to replace those worn out tie rods. These are well priced and comparable to many of the other options. I was quoted $500 to do my inner and outer tie rods. I came on American Muscle and paid under $100 for the inner and outer tie rods for both sides. It took less than an hour to install and align. Learning how your suspension and steering work can save $$$ down the road, and replacing your outer tie rods is an easy way to start. As many others have said, make sure you use one of the many methods to keep you "toe" setting as accurate as possible. I personally use the jack stand string method to ensure my alignment is accurate. Also, shipping was super fast; like next day fast!

    Perfect fit and easy replacement for stock tie rod ends. Very simple to replace. Make sure to have the alignment checked after install to prevent odd tire wear.

    Great replacement part!

    Both my tie rod ends were badly torn at 91K miles on my '07 V6 and while doing some suspension work i decided to change them out, keep in mind these replacement tie rods are slightly shorter than the stock ones making it hard to adjust them to the same length as the old ones. I got it pretty close and then took to an alignment shop. They are mevotech brand which is a quality part. Would buy again if needed!

    Simple install

    Took me about an hour and half. I had to spray wd-40 to remove the old tie rods. As long as you count the turns to remove the old tie rods and use those many turns for the install it's easy. I noticed the difference as I went for a test drive. It was immediate., better response and handling. Just needs an alignment

    good stock replacement

    my stock tie rod ends had worn down from my spirited driving habits. when you grabbed the wheel and pulled on it side to side you could feel the slop. i picked up 2 of these tie rod ends from AM and was able to replace them fairly easily within about 2 hours. I taped off the tie rod end nut so my car wouldn't be terribly out of alignment, loosened it ever so slightly and spun the tie rod end off. the new one was the same size so i put it on and tightened the nut. when i took it in for an alignment later i was only .05 off on the toe on one side. the car feels much better on the road after replacing these.

    Outer tie rod end!

    I had ordered the front outer tie rod end due to and accident i had to the driver side of my mustang. I was looking around for this part all over and this one was the cheapest one i stumbled upon. The outer tie rod end was a little bit smaller then the stock one that originally came from the factory.
