      Review & Installation 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.

        Great product.

        Well let me just say that I hate the person who put Red threadlocker on the old parts, had to go buy a torch the get them off 1 tool on the work bench :). New parts are of good quality and went on easy, I would also recommend looking at your sway bar links while you’re under there and consider replacing them before your alignment.

        You can do it

        ordered this as well as inner tie rod. Tired of paying shops to install parts that at the end of the day are a few bolts. if you have a jack, car stands, a 32mm 17mm 13mm , and rent the tool that helps to remove this piece, which at advanced auto is free, and you tube.. your good, Yes it may take an afternoon to do but in new york you save $300-400. total ripoff. trust it looks intimidating, it is not. the product is an exact fit, and yes it has corrected all my issues. knocking noises, steering wheel shake, slight pull. you do have to take for a wheel alignment.

        An inexpensive remedy for an annoying problem

        I had a very noticeable vibration in my steering column and suspension at 55 MPH. I had the two upper tie rods installed at my local tire shop for $220.00 including alignment. The vibration is now gone and the steering is tighter and more responsive. Best money I have spent on my 2009 so far.

        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.

      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.

      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.
