      Review & Installation Video

      OPR's replacement tire rod end we're taking a look at today is going to be a good OEM-quality factory replacement option for Mustang owners out there that are on a budget and need a new tire rod end from either years of abuse, or maybe even a little bit of an altercation with a curb. Now, looking towards the installation, despite its size, this is something that's going to warrant a two-hour job. I will be giving it a pretty involved one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here. I will have a little bit more information for you coming up on that later. So some typical symptoms of a bad tire rod end can easily be characterized by squeaking or noises when you're attacking bumps in the road or potholes, especially when you're turning. But in my personal experience, what I've felt in the past is overall just a really loose or a disconnected steering wheel feel. Manufactured from factory-style equipment, this direct replacement is going to be forged and heat treated to give you the best grain structure possible, which in laymen's terms just means that it's going to be really strong.Now, additionally, this is going to feature a patented cover plate design that's going to sandwich the ball stud between the upper and lower bearing. What that's going to do is cut down on axial lash. Now, what this all means here, guys, is that this factory-style replacement is going to consistently give you the right amount of preload, which in turn is going to affect the steering shaft effort. So you're not going to have this wear unevenly over time. Now, another great aspect about this end is that it's going to feature a polychloroprene compound. Now, this is basically a strong rubber compound that's going to ensure that it can take a beating from any type of abrasion, dirt, and debris, as well as high temperatures. Now, additionally, these seals will feature a grease relief valve, so you can essentially flush all that bad stuff out of the end itself, re-grease it, and then you're good to go. Now, in terms of the pricing, expect to be spending $30 per side here. That's honestly a small price to pay to get your car back on the road in a pinch and get that steering back into check. Now, on the flipside here, guys, a factory-style replacement over the counter from your local dealership is likely going to run probably around $50. For the pricing here, it's honestly a no-brainer in the event you need to get your Mustang back on the road fast. Now, looking at the installation, like I said earlier, this is going to warrant an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, but expect to be wrenching for a couple hours. So getting started, you're obviously going to want to get that car off the ground. A quick tip here is that whichever side you decide to work on or you need to work on, make sure to turn your wheels in whichever direction you're starting with. But after that, you're going to begin by removing the cotter pin, followed by the castle nut. Now, another quick tip here is that you're going to want to mark the inner tire rod shaft where the lock nut is, so that when you go to get your factory replacement back in line, you're going to know exactly where it needs to be. But after that, you're going to want to use a pickle fork and a mallet to dislodge the end of the tire rod. After that, you're going to want to loosen the lock nut, and then untwist the tire rod end. Now, at this point, guys, that is going to be about 50% of the way into the uninstallation. Once you're done there, it's more or less getting your new OPR replacement in line, reinstalling everything in the reverse order, getting your wheels back on the car, get the car on the ground, and then head out for a solid alignment. Then, you're good to go. So that's going to wrap up my quick review of OPR's front outer tire rod ends, fitting your 1994 through 2004 Mustang, which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

      Description

      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 new replacement outer tie rods will greatly improve your Mustangs steering and ride quality. Even though these OPR Outer Tie Rod Ends are sold individually, it is recommended to replace the driver and passenger side at the same time.

      Superior Construction. These replacement OPR tie rod housings are 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.

      Greaseable Seals. The replacement OPR tie rod seals are made from a premium polychloroprene compound that can easily withstand dirt, abrasion, and temperature extremes. These seals also feature a grease relief valve so that debris can easily be flushed out when serviced to help prevent contamination for a longer life.

      Straight Forward Installation. OPR designed their Outer Tie Rod End to be a direct fit replacement for the factory tie rod end. Using basic hand tools, this Tie Rod End can be install in about 2-3 hours with no modifications required. Please note that an alignment is highly recommended after installation.

      Application. This replacement OPR Outer Tie Rod End is designed to be a direct fit replacement for the 1994-2004 Mustangs including V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. Fits driver or passenger side, sold individually.

        Definitely worth the buy

        My old ones were bad and did cause some pretty poor steering. Bought these and I don't think my ride could be any smoother steering wise. Left and right turns are smooth as ice and much more responsive. Took literally around 20 to 30 minutes for install and it's a pretty easy fix. Alignment is suggested after install.

      Grease Do these come already greased or should I get some grease ahead of time? Also, any recommendations of grease to get for these? Thanks for your help.

      • Yeah you need to get some grease, Ebay carries mini grease guns that would fit for $10 or less with fast shipping. Comes with assorted grease refills as well
