    Review & Installation Video

    The OPR replacement front inner tie rod end is available for any '94 to '04 SN95 or New Edge Mustang owner who's looking to fix that shaky steering that can occur as a result of a failing tie rod end. This front inner tie rod option is a very affordable fix for just about $30 which is about half the price of a Ford replacement. And the installation isn't too difficult, so I am giving it one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which I'll walk you through later on in the video. If you feel your car start to wander off down the road, or if you feel a little bit of vibration in the steering, then it might be time for some new tie rod ends. Obviously, this can be pretty annoying, not to mention dangerous if left untreated. It's a good idea to replace both sides at the same time because if one's going bad, then it's possible that the other is on its way out as well. It is a good thing that these are interchangeable for both the driver and passenger sides as a direct fit replacement. The tie rod housings are forged and heat treated for a high-strength durability. The bearing has grooves that, like grease, flow through the bearings to the stud for a smooth, durable surface for a longer lasting life. Now, like I said before, this is priced at about 30 bucks which in my opinion is a very affordable replacement to a pretty serious issue. And for 100 bucks, you can do both sides, which is even better. If you pick these up from Ford directly, they'd be about $80 a piece, just to give you some perspective. Keep in mind, they do not include outer tie rod ends but they can be picked up together on the product page at AM for just about 30 bucks more. The installation, again, is pretty straightforward. You can get it done in about an hour or two with very simple hand tools in the driveway at home, like a ratchet and socket set, a few wrenches, some PB Blaster, Red Loctite, pliers, and a torque wrench. Definitely giving this one one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The first thing you wanna do is get the car in the air and the wheels removed and then take some PB Blaster and soak the jam nut connecting the tie rod end and the shaft, as well as the nut holding on the tie rod to the spindle. Then, put a wrench on the flats on the inner tie rod or vice grips work as well, then use another wrench to break loose the jam nut. It's easier to do this while it's on a car still. Next, you'll just remove the nut at the spindle which is easier to do with a breaker bar attached. Before you drop the tie rod from the spindle, it's a good idea to remove the ABS sensor, so it doesn't get damaged, which you can do with an appropriate socket as well as a pair of pliers. When you get the outer tie rod end free from the spindle, what you wanna do when removing it from the inner portion is count how many complete rotations you make when removing it, so when you put it back on you can put it on with the same amount of turns to keep the alignment as close as possible to where it needs to be. You still wanna take it to an alignment shop, but at least it won't be undrivable. It'll make it easier to get the car there. On the inner tie rod, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to pinch the tension clip and pull it down. The clip on the other side will usually break, in which case you can pick up a replacement or most people just tend to throw on a zip tie instead. They do the same job. From here, you can use a wrench to break loose and remove the nut holding the inner tie rod in place. Put your new OPR replacement into the factory location and tighten it down to that bolt. The boot will go back on either with the factory clip or with a zip tie I just mentioned. The other end will go into the outer tie rod end which you'll put on using the same amount of rotations as you took it off, like I mentioned before. Tighten that nut back up once you've done that then bolt it back down to the spindle. Using Red Loctite on this is a good idea to keep it locked up, but only a little bit is necessary. From here you're good to go. Well, that just about does it for me. So if you're the owner of '94 to '04 Mustang, you might wanna check out the OPR replacement front inner tie rod end which is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

        On the inner tie rod, what is that very tiny lock looking piece for? What purpose does it serve? OEM doesn’t have anything like that. I see on the replacement tie rod, there are holes that seem to indicate the piece is supposed to go.

        • On the OPR Replacement Front Inner Tie Rod End the holes are used for a cotter pin to lock the tie rod in place for extra security.

        Had my rack and pinion replaced, do I need inner and outer tie rods? I had a shop do the rack and pinion and still have a noise when steering, especially when car has been driven for a bit. I took it to another shop and they said I need to have the tie rods replaced. Do I need to do the inner and outer at the same time?

            Great product for the price!

            My 98 Cobra started having some vibrations in the wheel while i was driving. Then it started making some noises when i turned the wheel. The diagnoses was a bad inner passenger side tie rod. I ordered this part from American Muscle and as always shipping was fast. After i installed the part and had an alignment done the car handled like new again! Thank you AM for another great product!

            I had a bent front inner tie rod, and this thing was super easy to install. The only thing I don't like is that there is no replacement clamp for the one time use clamp.

            Great Replacement Tie Rod

            I paired these with the outer tie rod ends offered on the site here. Together, they fixed my alignment and my car now feels easy to steer and keep in control, where as before with old ones my car would hover side to side in it's lane.

            Great part that makes a big defference

            When drove slow I could hear the inner tie rod was getting worn out on the passenger side and it would get louder as I hit around 50. I recently purchased one of these had it installed by my mechanic. With the new one the noise is gone and the feel of my mustang is near perfect! Now to do the other side! I recommend doing both at the time I notice the other one going now. Thanks AM! Awesome high quality parts!

            Great replacement for worn out OEM

            This along with a replacement outer tie-rod end definitely removes the slack involved with the old OEM parts. Only product I've seen similar quality from is Moog, as AM's suspension components are provided by MEVOTech.

            No more squeeking!

            When my old tie rods needed to be replaced, Ford tried to sell me the inner & outer tie rods with labor for over $500. I ditched them, bought a set of inner & outer tie rods through American Muscle and couldn't be happier. I received them within just a few days and brought them to my guy and had it done within a few hours. It stopped the squeeking I had coming from the wheel well and inevitably gave me much better handling response than the previously worn out ones I had on them.
