Side rods, also known as ‘tie rods’, attach the centre drag link to your steering rack and play a vital role in your ability to steer left and right. Car Parts 4 Less stocks cheap side rods for cars of all shapes and sizes.
Side rods are a key part of the steering mechanism in your vehicle. The inner side rods attach to the left and right sides of the centre drag link. The outer rods link to an adjustment sleeve for better wheel alignment. The side rods transmit force from the drag link to the steering knuckle through pivot points. Your wheels turn as the pivot points roll over the steering rack. As side rods wear, they may come loose and create more play in your steering wheel. If this happens, you should replace them immediately. This is because total failure could mean you no longer have any control over your wheels. To change your worn side rods, choose Car Parts 4 Less for the best replacements at a bargain price.
