Research on Tie Rod for Ford Explorer

A damaged tie rod creates a dangerous situation when driving your Ford Explorer. Whether you need a Ford Explorer inner tie rod replacement or a new outer tie rod, you should not drive until you get the job done because you could potentially lose control of your vehicle if you have a tie rod completely fail. To avoid putting yourself in this situation, it's best to replace a bad tie rod as soon as possible.

What are Tie Rods?

The tie rods connect your steering system to your wheels. Without them, you'd have trouble steering your Ford Explorer. Each tie rod connects to the wheels with a tie rod end. Typically, the ends fail before the tie rods do. A bad or loose tie rod end could be dangerous for your vehicle.

What Does a Rear Tie Rod Do and How is It Different from a Front Tie Rod?

Your Ford Explorer has tie rods in the front, and the rear tie rods are actually called toe links, but they serve a similar purpose to connect the wheels to the suspension system and rest of the vehicle. Because tie rods and toe links are not interchangeable, if you have a bad toe link in the back of your Explorer, you will need to replace it with an appropriate toe link for your vehicle's model year. The same is true for tie rods on the front of your Ford.

How Long Do Tie Rods Last?

On most vehicles, you'll need to replace the tie rod ends before you replace the tie rods. The average lifespan for tie rods can vary greatly depending on your driving habits. If you are ever in an accident, it's imperative to have your steering system, including the tie rods checked for damage. Sometimes, just wear and tear will shorten the life of tie rods and tie rod ends. The classic sign of bad tie rods is your car pulling to one side. This could indicate a bad front-end alignment, but it may spontaneously caused by bad tie rods or loose tie rod ends. Turning may cause knocking noises around your wheels, and you may also notice the tires wear unevenly, which may require you to replace the tires as well as the tie rods.

Ford Explorer Tie Rod Replacement Cost

If you need new tie rods, the price will depend on if you need both tie rods and ends or just the ends. Usually, mechanics replace tie rod ends in pairs, either changing both outer or both inner tie rod ends. The price for a set of rear tie rod ends 2002 Ford Explorer a mechanic typically charges is from $287 to $410. If you have replaced tie rods or tie rod ends before, you can change these on your Ford Explorer and save a lot of money.
