    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.

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

    DerekH

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

      Another great product

      The Tie Rod ends on my 2006 GT were completely shot. I took my car to a local garage, although they do not service Mustangs they are American car savvy. As I watched and spoke to the mechanic it took him 23 minutes to replace both ends and 15 minutes to do the tracking. The total time spend cost less than a mid priced ball joint splitter! They have had to endure the worst winter the UK has had for many years, together with our pot holed roads. They been on the car for nearly six months and there is no sign of wear. Will buy again.

      Awesome Ride Improvement

      I installed my inner and outer tie rod ends along with sway bar brackets and struts. The tie rods are doing great, alignment is great and corrected the drifting I was having while driving and braking. 2007 Mustang GT with 130k miles. It took about an hour per side if that. The car handles like new. Thank AM!!!!!!

      Easy and cheap

      While working on my brakes I noticed my out tie rod boots were torn. I thought about the bump steer kits bit decided to go with these because of the price. They are solid. I did the inner tie rods at the same time and it tighten my steering up to factory quality.
