Chasing a part no. For VS inner tie rod ends ,Where a good place to buy in Melbourne?
No inner tie rod ends.....They have just the outer....
Unfortunately I don't have a part number but any auto parts store should stock them....Very common part
I think you'll find this is another one of those parts that has differing names.
This would be called a "Rack End" which is at the other end of the rod that has the Tie Rod End mounted on it.
As above and Repco and and Spares Box both sell them. I looked for some as i am considering buying some myself.
So what we can say is, when ordering ask either a tie rod end or a rack end...
The rack end is a long tube per say, where the tie rod end has a ball with a thread that takes a nut as part of it
The tie rod end being located closest to the wheel
So would you say, this would be a good description to save confusion
Edit....Just to help and I know others will argue black and blue it's wrong, here's some pictures to help the op
Tie rod end
You being cheeky VC?
It might be an idea for you to buy the rackends for your bus.....The end section might be moving out a fraction in the ball area, causing the issue you are facing....
Not saying it's the definate cause, but it maybe a plausible cause.....
Oh and sorry to the op for the sidetrack
I totally get it VC and understand what is what, but there's always a not so better class of mechanic out there lurking in their backyards and it's amazing what they call things.
The original post just highlights the ignorance out there and it's to be expected from non experienced parts people.
