Cheap parts

Posted by cavell (My Page) on

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.

RE: Cheap parts

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.
