I am looking to replace all my tie rod ends, etc. Where do you guys buy your stuff?
If I get them from Autozone then its like $130 and they are all duralast with a Lifetime warranty(I am not sure about duralast but the warranty would be nice to have) I have purchased duralast starters etc and when one wore out it was very easy to return.
Or I could buy them from quadratec for like 70 plus shipping....I dont think they would be warrantied.
Where do you guys buy your tie rod ends? and other steering components.
Yeah, I bought a full set for my CJ. As well as a new drag link. They are OEM spec. Now I haven't gotten my CJ on the road since I've replaced them so I cant comment on durability, but I would imagine they would last as well as OEM. Also have zerk fittings on them for lube.

Moog!!! If you want quality, they are hard to beat and last I checked, not Chinese. My local O'Reilly's carries them and I know Summit also stocks them. They will not likely be the cheapest but I think you get what you pay for.
I just received my tie rods and tubes from Morris 4x4 yesterday. I order them on Sunday…so it only took 3 days to get to my door. I ordered all four tie rods and both tubes and with shipping the total was about $190.00. Quality looks okay….hard to tell by looking though. They are as big as stock and they do have grease fittings.
Re the Quadratec ends; I ordered a 2nd/3rd gear syncronizer from them because it was like $45 cheaper than other places I looked. It ended up on backorder for 3 and 1/2 weeks before I cancelled and ordered from another source, who had it in stock and shipped it out same day. Just a thought before you order them; make sure they have them in stock!
