Cheap parts

stoveguyyMay 28, 2012

Got 2 new outer tie rods for grand prix 2 yrs ago. Had tire changed last week and tech showed me both tierods were loose? I changed an inner tie rod on my Seville last year and now I have a brake shudder. Have not jacked up car but I would not be surprised if something is loose. I did put on new rotors 20-30k miles ago. And I drive easy. Rear pads are fairly new. Maybe these cheap Internet sourced parts are junk? I do my own installs so labor is cheap but it sure is annoying to replace parts so soon.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

When you changed the tie rod, did you also check for front wheel alignment? Tie rod length is adjsutable; It affects toe-in/toe-out.
