rod ends

how many miles are you guys getting out of tie rod ends. everyplace i go they keep telling me they are fine

i have roughly 300,000 miles on them. only one has been replaced because of a wreck. the wreck messed up the threads for alignment.

I just replaced all of my drag links/ tie rods and done all the ball joints/ universals too. Sitting at about 225k. Id say if they are tight and boots are in good shape them leave them alone. If your boots are busted or dry rotted then replace them. Especially if youre wearing tires on the front.
