Default tie rod ends

John Bull, what are you using for the tie rod ends on your cars. Seems like they would have less slop and be easier to work on than normal ball cups.

Unfortunately you can buy directly from them.. You would have to look through the store list to find a distributor..

MERF,

All tie rod ends used on both my SD and my son's TC3 are Associated shock ends.

They have outlasted everything else I have tried in terms of play. The best bit is that if they are starting to loosen all I do is tighten up the screw a bit and that expands the ball and takes up the play.

AKU MAN.

I have just ordered a stock of spools today - from the manufacturer.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Johnbull,

What are you using in place of the ball studs for the associated shock ends?

Cheers

johnbull,
Isn't there some slop too between the plastic ball and the screw that holds it?

Hi guys just have a quick question. Is the main shaft on the CGM the same length as the one on the SD?

Thanks
