A tie rod is a device that links the steering knuckle of your car to the steering rack on the front wheel. The adjusting sleeve encircles the outer and inner ends of the tie. When you rotate your steering wheel, it activates the movement of the entire mechanism. The rods pull or push the wheel and turn it around. Since you're going to find it virtually impossible to drive your vehicle if you can't turn the steering wheel, it's not long before you realize how vital the maintenance of your tie rods can be.
Made of high-strength steel, the tie rod is a slender, two-part cylindrical structure. Consisting of the inner and outer end, the outer section is called the tie rod’s end. While the rack and pinion system and the recirculating ball system operate differently, both systems use a tie rod to connect the steering rack to the steering arm attached to the steering wheel. Tie rods are crucial for your steering system. Simply put, your car can't be driven without tie rods. Serving as the pivot point between the steering rack, the steering arm, and the steering wheel, tie rods not only help you move your wheels when you're driving, they make it possible to turn.
