Hey,


a little clarification please. I was told an MOT or two ago (no-one's mentioned it since :-/ ) I have a worn track-rod end. I was wondering whether to stay standard or go uprated. I'm not sure but they seem to use different terms in Japan - tie-bars, tension rods. Am I right in thinking these are the same thing? And are they worth investing in?

The only thing I notice when driving is a slight movement through the wheel on long corners. Obviously new standard ends would solve this so how much are they and are tein/hks/nismo/whoever ones worth the extra over standard?

Cheers :drivin:

The track rod ends are cheap enough not to mess with just replace them.

8 times out or 10 MOT stations use pry bars or levers to lever the rack arm up to check for up & down wear on the rod ends which is what they normally advise on slight lift/wear.

If you were a real tight a** & desperately needed an MOT you could just whack the top of the rod end down a bit further to take out the slack.
