The tie rod is an integral part of the steering mechanism in your Mustang. A tie rod consists of an inner and outer end that transmits force from your turning the steering wheel toward either side of the car to turn the tires in a given direction. With that said, it’s important to know that your tie rods are performing at optimum levels before pushing your Mustang to the limit out on the street and track.
How Do I Know I Need New Mustang Tie Rods?
Aside from visual inspection, that should be done every time you change the oil, there are multiple ways to tell you may need new tie rods through vehicle behavior. Tie rods are a wearable part of your vehicle’s steering and suspension system, so it’s definitely something that can wear out over time. Some key signs that you should check your Mustang’s tie rod ends would include your Mustang pulling to one side or the other during regular driving conditions, uneven tire wear, vibrations, looseness, erratic steering feel.
The reason that uneven tire wear is included is because part of your alignment is adjusted through the tie rod ends. If they aren’t functioning properly, then it could lead to knocking your Mustang’s alignment out of whack, thus causing uneven tire wear and multiple other symptoms.
