    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.

    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.

        Will I need to grease the moving parts under the boot, or does it come pre-greased and ready to go?

        • This tie rod is non-serviceable which means there is no need to grease or maintain it. If it fails replace it.

        it says "each" if i order this for $22 does that come with one for passenger and driver side?

        • The OPR Replacement Front Outer Tie Rod End is sold in a quantity of one. If you needed to replace your driver and passenger side outer tie rods, you will need to order a quantity of 2.

        Will be lowering my 2010 Mustang GT next month. Drop will be estimated of 1.5". Will this be enough to replace my worn out outer tie rod? No drastic camber. Thanks.

        Hi I just installed these and now I hear a clunking noise when going over bumps? Only on one side.

        • We apologize to hear this! We would recommend having a shop take a look into this. If you are getting a clunking noise after installing these, that may indicate that they are defective. Once you have a shop take a look, please reach out to us so we can see about replacing these for you.

            Installed easily. It tightened up the front end of my 2005 mustang GT. It is the same size as the factory. The tie rod seems to be of good quality.

            Couldn't Be Happier

            Fantastic part, cheap but also very well made. Make sure to get an alignment done after, no matter how close you may have gotten t to straight there is no point in cheaping out on a $100 alignment just to kill your tires prematurely.

            Awesome Replacement of Front Outer Tie Rod Ends

            First replacing any suspension part on my car. The whole procedure was simple easy replacement of parts using hand tools and jack stand. Getting a frontend alignment is still required. Works great, no more vibrations in the steering.

            Both outer tie rods were blown, quick and easy replacement though since I also lowered the car I should have gone with a bump steer kit. But these work just fine.
