Ensuring that a vehicle's wheels function in-sync, a track rod is what connects your car’s two front wheels to each other. Faulty track rods and track rod ends can cause all sorts of issues – so fix yours today with Euro Car Parts.
A track rod actually comprises two rods – an inner and an outer track rod. The inner rod is attached to the steering rack and pinion, while the outer rod is attached to the steering knuckle. Together they perform an essential role in a car’s steering function. If they become loose this will certainly affect wheel alignment and steering control. The effect of wear in the track rod end is believed to be the main cause of worn tyres and you might notice a feathered pattern developing on your tyres if this is the case. It is recommended that track rod ends be replaced on both sides of the car at the same time to promote equal wear. It’s worth noting that while some track rod ends are sealed, others require regular greasing. We supply a full range of durable track rods and track rod ends at very reasonable prices.
