Outer Tie Rod

Outer Tie Rod - Understanding Steering

The outer tie rod end connects to the spindle or steering arm. A typical tie rod end consists of a tapered stud that is assembled in a forging that threads into the inner tie rod end or tie rod, commonly referred to as an adjustment sleeve. When you steer a vehicle, the stud in the outer tie rod end pivots to allow the spindle or steering arm to rotate while keeping the tie rod assembly located properly. Outer tie rod ends are another critical component to a vehicles steering system.
