As subcomponent of your Scion 's steering system, the tie rod end connects the steering knuckles to the tie rods. Each time you move the steering wheel, the Scion tie rod end relays the force into the knuckle assembly, causing the wheels to move smoothly. This will eventually fail due to regular exposure to pressure & torque.
The tie rod end of your Scion requires enough oil so as to function smoothly. When the rod ends aren't greased, deterioration due to friction can occur. Signs that friction has ruined the tie rod end include tire wear marks. Don't drive with cracked Scion tie rod ends for your and your Scion 's safety; remember that automotive steering gears very much rely on these steel rod ends. Many direct-fit parts are now affordable so never buy used spare parts.
