Tie rod choice; which?!

Recommended Posts

lagonda

My CTi's Controle Technique (French MoT) is due imminently, and checking over the car, I've discovered that the nearside tie rod joint, where it connects to the rack inside the rubber boot, has a fair amount of free play. There is a bewildering choice of replacements; can anyone recommend any of these particularly ... or state any to avoid?!

 

Meyle  13.58

TRW  11.29

Sidem 10.79

Delphi  11.69

Quinton Hazell  8.78

RTS SA  7.79

Moog  12.29

Febi Bilstein  25.99 (!)

 

Autodoc website has even more makes. Prices quoted above are in euros.

From that list I’d probably pick Meyle or TRW, Quinton Hazel stuff has also been ok for me.

TRW or Lemforder if you can get them and the price is reasonable.

Many thanks all for quick and helpful replies. I'll have a search for the Febi one, but it looks like Meyle or TRW for me.

Off that list I would go for TRW or Moog.

We use Moog Honda wishbones and they are good, made in Switzerland no less.Honda TRW track rod ends are as good as genuine ones.

 My experiences with meyle HD are positive, ie Berlingo/Partner droplinks but regular Meyles  not so good, thats with parts for W123 Merc coupes and Golfs.

Febi stuff was poor. Joke wishbone bushes particularily for VW and Audi, although the 205 rear beam mounts are fine.

Quinton Hazel used to be top notch, but now just a badging brand with no manufacturing.

Ditto , TRW or Moog or Delphi (had and still have few Delphi wishbones which lasted long time of use and abuse .. balljoints still good on them ..) 

 

Certainly with TRW suspension parts you can't go wrong ..

 

While Meyle HD can be good , "ordinary" Meyle was disappointment for me too ... noticed they're pushing themselves on the spare part market game with "mega-buck" PR quite intensively around the EU last few years .
