Tie Rod Ends are are the “arms” that push your wheels right or left when you turn the steering wheel.

As a tie rod end wears over time, it loosens, causing vibrations and shakes which can be felt in the steering wheel while the vehicle is in motion as well as creaking and groaning when you turn the steering wheel at low speed (like in a parking lot).

Depending on the vehicle, an outer tie rod replacement typically costs anywhere from $20-$95 for parts and $50-$110 labor. Inner tie rod replacement costs in the neighborhood of $25-$102 for parts plus $60-$150 labor.

Because tie rods affect the steering angle, whenever the tie rod ends are replaced, a wheel alignment must be done, at an additional cost, to bring the steering and suspension angles back to within specifications.

Never lose track of your vehicle's service history again.
