Re: Tie rod ends : Difference maker?

BPOS is correct, The kit makes alignment easier and the parts are really high quality, but they won't make a difference in handling unless your stock parts are worn out. How does you know if your stock stuff is worn out? Does the steering have play? Has it been 50k miles or 10 years since the front end was rebuilt? If so it's probably worth looking into.
