As subcomponent of your Chevrolet Uplander's steering unit, the tie rod end connects the knuckle parts to the rods. Every time you turn the actual wheel, the Chevrolet Uplander tie rod end relays the force into the knuckle unit, causing the wheels to move smoothly. It will eventually wear out because of regular exposure to pressure and torque.
An fully working tie rod end of your Chevrolet Uplander definitely needs proper lubrication so as to function perfectly. When the lubrication product wears off, extra force is put into the inner rod, causing it to snap back and cause a clunk-like sound especially when making a turn. Tell-tale signs that friction has ruined the tie rod end may include tire wear scratches. Driving with bent Chevrolet Uplander tie rod ends is quite dangerous because you really won't enjoy complete control of your Chevrolet Uplander's steering mechanism, so change a poorly working component ASAP. Always choose brand-new OE replacements for better durability you can depend on for several years.
