About Tie Rods
This is a system that connects the steering rack and helps coordinate the front tires as the steering wheel is turned.
Tie rods should be replaced when there the front end alignment is off. The rod is important as it keeps the wheels aligned. When it is worn out, the front wheels remain out of the alignment and cause the car to drift to either side even when driven straight. The other need for replacement of the rod happens when the steering wheel feels loose and shakes. Uneven and excessive tire wear is also an indicator of a worn out tie rod.
