I went ot get my new tires on, and get an alignment. The shop is telling me that my toe? adjuster adn tie rod assembly (all one piece they say) needs to be replaced.

They quoted $440 - parts and labor.

Is that reasonable? Can this be easily replaced? What the heck is it???

Cheers!!!

I have some pics of bad tie rods on my site.
Tie rod ends are cheap and "easy" to replace. You can do the work yourself and then GO TO A DIFFERENT SHOP to have aligned. I wouldn't trust those guys again. My opinion, mind you, but unnecessary work is a thief's job.

Good luck. Check the prices of the tie rod ends on the sites. They are like 20 bucks each. That and a few hours and you'll be ready for an alignment.

Cheers guys - it is the piece labeled #4 that is the track rod in the back - it is frozen and so they can not do the alignment. I am going to AB to buy the pieces myself! And scrape some skin off my knuckles installing it.


Cheers!

I've got a spare one if you need it. I removed mine when I did the damper relocation. Let me know if you need it.
