OK Folks, lets talk Tie Rod Ends - I think I have confused myself on this. The long rod that goes from tire to tire is what I am calling the tie rod, on each end of it is the tie rod end, Correct??? I would assume these are the outers, Correct Again??? Why am I finding prices of Moog Outer Tie Rod Ends all over the price spectrum from $37.00 ea to $135.00 ea for OEM replacement parts. In some of the pics I have looked at, it is labeled as "Tie Rod End Outer" but looks like it comes with the while tie rod, showing about 4 to 5 feet long. My drivers side tie rod end, where it hooks to the knuckle is worn out, so I figured I should replace both sides. What is it that I need to be looking for to get the right part???

This is an old pic of the heep, and you can almost see the part that I am talking about closest to the tire on each end of the horizontal bar (tie rod) just above the springs.

The drivers side of the tie rod (end) is replaceable. If you want to replace the passengers side you will have to get the whole bar. Look close there are no threads to replace that one, thus you need the whole thing.

So then these are not typically replaced in pairs unless both are bad?? I guess all that I need is the drivers side one.

Yeah, got to kinda bite the bullet on that one, i've found that its better to replace them in pairs, replacing one side and not the either might wear the new one out faster. You could check the end play with a dial indicator to see if its within tolerance. $172 is a chunk of change i wouldnt want to spend if i didn't really have to.

Well I have taken a break from working on the heep for a while now. I think I have to many hobbies and work really seems to get in the way also except for payday..

Little problem I am having now, not really a problem but more of an annoying noise coming from my brakes. When rolling slow they chirp constantly. They probably do it all the time but I can only hear at less then 25 or so. I can just lay my foot on the brake peddle and they are quite as a mouse then. It probably has something to do with me not installing the anti rattle clips with my front brake pads. I never could figure out how they went on there and had never seen them on other vehicles I had worked on before so I chunked em.. Is this chirping and running without them hurting anything??? I seam to have good stopping power and brakes have been on there for over a year now.

That is WAY too much wheel weights!!!!! When I was working in a tire shop the owner didn't allow us to put more than 4 oz. on one tire, and only in one location. I highly recommend having them rebalanced, if they come out like that again tell them that is unacceptable and have them rotate the tire on the rim 90*, this will help considerably.

Don't spend too much on that driver side tie rod end. When you go to replace the whole rod you should go with a heavier duty one, i.e. thicker and better material. Or you could weld a piece of angle iron on the front of it. I have personal experience between just a piece of metal rod welded to the front and also have experience with angle iron welded to it. The angle iron stands up to alot more abuse.


Edit: Before you bring the tires in to have them balanced make sure you scrape off all the weight, that way they can't tell you that there was that much on before.

Well I have not done to much on the heep lately but got a little itch to work on it over the weekend. I installed my Aussie Locker in the D-30. Wasn't to bad of a job. I had originally bought a couple of 4:10 axles, D-30 and D-35 and installed the locker in it. I never got around to installing the new axles in the heep, talked myself into holding out on an 8.8. So I thought in the mean time why am I letting a perfectly good locker go to waist sitting in my shop in a axle I don't plan on using in a while. So I had to remove it from that axle and install into the one in the heep (3:07 gears).

Played around on a washed out ditch today to see what the locker would do. Not once did I get stuck due to opposite corner wheels spinning on me. It seemed to work really well. Still not a good test of the locker but that is coming soon on a weekend when I have the time to travel a little.

Flex Shot - I think Flat fenders are coming next..

Tim, I love the look of my flats and they work great. I think we have the same amount if lift and I moved up to 35s one I put them on with TJ flares in the rear. I guess my only concern is how messy they are going to be in the mud/rainy season. I bought the MCE ones

They are Gen II. I did a lot of measuring before I started cutting LOL, but once you start is no big deal. The way I figured it was they are just fenders and new ones could be bolted back on. Now cutting the tub for the TJ rears was a whole new ball game. But it worked out in the long run and the TJ rear are one of my favorite mods.

Well after installing Aussie locker a few weeks ago I guess I messed up my axle seal on the drivers side. Noticed a leak yesterday morning... I now have it torn down to replace both seals. Going to town now to get the seals, tried yesterday but they wanted to sell me some solid rubber seals at my local part house that looked nothing like the ones that came out... I am going to try a different part house this morning.

Thinking about installing a home made posi-lock while I have it apart if I can find the parts this morning to do it.

I had the same problem on the Pass side. The seals were cheap so I bought (2) incase I messed one up (and I did) so it wouldnt shut me down or make me have to run and get another one. If you dont use it you can take it back.

Well it took me 3 different parts stores to get 1 of each. I hope I don't mess one up.. I guess I will have to be especially careful with the ones I got.

Heading out now to try to get them installed. Shouldn't be to bad, I have made me a tool out of all-thread, large socket and some washers that should pull them right in.
