Tie Rods
« on: 02 May 2009, 01:44 »
I'm cleaning up the tie rodes on teh front end. The 40 year old rubber looks it! Is there a source for new rubber or do you just buy the new ends? I can find the ends several places. I've found the ball joint boot kits at several sites and will get those.

Is there a special grease to use on all these joints?

Also, how loose (easy to move in and out) should the steering dampener be before it needs to be replaced? Mine moves pretty easily compared to a shock absorber.

Anybody have experience wtih shock absorber brands that are good?

Thanks, Bob
