|Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 1||Inspect or have your tie rod components inspected for signs of wear.

Inspect your tie rod components regularly, following exposure to events that may harm them, or when you experience signs of tie rod component wear.|

Once lubrication is lost, the tie rod may loosen and bind up, preventing proper function. Check or have your tie rod ends checked and lubricated if necessary.|
|Good Maintenance Practices - Section 1 - Bullet 3||Use 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.|
