Moog Tie-Rod threaded hole

Recommended Posts

I bought a set of Moog (Tie-Rods, Pitman Arms, Idler Arms, etc.) for my wife's 2004 Yukon. The parts looks great and they are all Made in USA. Then, i look closer in the Tie-Rod threaded hole and they are both off centered. How could that happened? Moog has been great in the past and this is just poor QC. The holes are off centered about 1/16th of an inch. Its probably not going to cause a problem since the rod ends move as you turn. The thinner side of that threaded hole is about 1/8th inch to the edge. What do you guys think? I would hate to return it as I bought it online.

I would go to auto parts store, see if theirs is off center. If not, I would return them. Why tolerate such things unless they are indeed supposed to be that way. You'll obviously will do what you want, but I wouldn't put those on without a little research. No way...

 

Go to group1autoparts.com and get some OEMs.

,put them on .. align , drive truck

^^^

Third vote for install, align, drive. When I did mine on my truck they were the same, now if they extremely off center I'd worry but that little bit shouldn't concern you in the least.

With the off center drilling of the tie rod, isn't that thin section at higher risk of breakage (weaker)? I suppose you could argue that there are no forces moving in that direction.
