FAQ - Answer 1Yes. Uneven or accelerated tire wear can be caused by wheel misalignment, worn suspension and steering components, and/or improper tire inflation. The most critical alignment angle with respect to tire wear is toe caused by a worn or damaged tie rod end. Misalignment is usually caused by worn, loose, or bent suspension and steering parts, (bad tie rod ends, idler arms, control arm bushings, ball joints, struts, etc.) but can also be due to spring sag or improper ride height.
FAQ - Answer 2Yes. Changing the tie rod may affect your alignment. The vehicle alignment should be checked after replacing steering or suspension components.

Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 1Inspect or have your tie rod end components inspected for signs of wear. Potholes, bumpy road conditions, and minor accidents can all result in tie rod wear, and, in extreme instances, bending or breakage. Inspect your tie rod components regularly, following exposure to events that may harm them, or when you experience signs of tie rod component wear.
Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 2Keep your tie rod ends lubricated. Road hazards like rough terrain or hitting curbs can damage tie rods and cause lubrication to leak out. Once lubrication is lost, the tie rod may loosen and bind up, preventing proper function. Check or have your tie rod ends checked, and lubricate them if necessary.
Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 3Use a sleeve rotating tool to rotate your tie rod end adjusting sleeve, and apply penetrating oil to the clamps and sleeve before loosening it. Proper sleeve rotation is key to helping prevent damage and a loose fit between the sleeve and tie rod end.
Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 4Installation of new tie rod components can interfere with the alignment of your vehicle. Perform a full four-wheel vehicle alignment after any tie rod replacement.
