What is an Inner Tie Rod End?

Tie rods are a vital part of your car’s steering system, and they’re attached to the steering rack and pinion. When the steering wheel and steering rack turn, they move the inner tie rods. The inner tie rods are attached to the outer tie rods, which are attached to the steering knuckle, which is what moves the wheel. A modern car with a rack and pinion steering system has four tie rods, with an inner and outer tie rod on each side. Each of the inner tie rods connects the steering rack to an outer tie rod. The inner tie rods are located inside the steering rack’s rubber boots.

Symptoms of a failing Inner Tie Rod End

Loose steering

It’s not a fun feeling when your steering wheel doesn’t fully correspond to what your car is doing. But that’s exactly what can happen with dead tie rods, as the steering will feel loose and vague.

Uneven tire wear

Tie rods play a role in your car’s wheel alignment. If that alignment is . . . well . . . not aligned, then the tires will wear at an uneven rate.

Pulling

No, you’re not imagining that. Or maybe you are, in which case there are bigger problems than your tie rods. But if your car is pulling to the left or right while you’re driving, then your tie rods are a likely issue.

Clunking or knocking

Don’t you just love strange noises coming from your car? Yeah, they’re just the best. If you hear a knocking or a clunking noise, that may be your tie rods sending you their obituary.
