so i found the real reason why something felt loose when driving,in the front of the vic. i jacked the car up and noticed my outter tie rods are just about useless.

So the real question is: what tie rods should i go with? and im also replacing my sway bar links...which should i go with?

thanks

If you can find them I personally like TRW, Between the price and boot material I found them better than Moog which I can get for $20 more.

When MOOG bought out the remaining stock of TRW parts in Advance auto's inventory, the TRW parts were switched to Moog boxes and sold as Moog parts (this was not an Advance decision). TRW makes good stuff, a lot of OEM stuff is TRW. The only thing i've found that Moog is usually superior in is more of their stuff comes with grease fittings, but TRW still has a lifetime warranty.

Go with one of the two, the are both excellent products.

I think autozone may have TRW, and I believe Advance has started carrying them again. But if you can't find them, definitely go with Moog over a cheapo.
