A tie rod end is a vital steering component of your Oldsmobile Calais. Every time you turn the wheel, the Oldsmobile Calais tie rod end transfers the force into the knuckle unit, allowing the wheels to move properly. This part is typically built from high-grade steel so as to tackle all the force, pressure, and torque but similar to other car parts, it is also prone to wear and tear.
Adequate amounts of grease should be used on the tie rod end of your Oldsmobile Calais. When the lubrication wears off, too much pressure is forced into the rod, triggering it to snap back and lead to a clunk-like sound when you're making a tight turn. Aside from an annoying noise, uneven tire wear is also a possible symptom a ruined tie rod end. Driving with broken Oldsmobile Calais tie rod ends can be dangerous because you will not have complete control of your Oldsmobile Calais's steering mechanism, so replace a worn out one as soon as possible. When hunting for a good replacement, don't go for cheap, used parts; using a brand-new part promises better product lifespan and OE products are very affordable.
