JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Steering tie rod end rubber boot blown up..

So while checking out my brakes i noticed one of those little joints with the small rubber boots on them had grease outside it. I felt around and the rubber boot has a large slice going half way around it so i assume it just blew up or something. The joint is on the drivers side right by the brake rotors. I assume this is the tie rod end. How hardexpensive is this to replace I assume you just pull

Theyre not usually too hard to replace just might be a little stubborn when trying to pop it out. I dont think theyre too expensive either but before doing that I would check to see if it has any play in it. Jack up the front of the vehicle and try to wiggle the tire side to side (the direction it would normally be turning) or have a friend wiggle it while you watch and feel for and movement between

Oh wow really Anal much No worries. Safe to ignore and stop trying to pump so much grease in every oil change. One pump tops is plenty. As long as some grease is in the ball of the joint itself and there is no play leave it alone because the above method of removing the tie rod will guarantee you need a new one. NEVER EVER hit the threaded end of the tie rod with or without a nut on it. You WILL destroy

threads. Hit the object the tie rod is threaded through in this case the knuckle at a 90 degree angle to the threaded portion of the tie rod end. Its far harder to describe than to do ask a competent mechanic to show you how and where. The shock will loosen the tie rod end. Remove the nut the last few threads replace the boot be happy. I never filled my boots with grease actually. I bought the jeep

Yea i was going to do that eventually.. However Boodyrider does have one good point i believe before i bought the jeep the dealership i got it from actually did fill these zerks with grease. I remember looking down there when inspecting the jeep there it had red grease on the tips on the zerks. Just by looking at the other ones (well 2-3 of them) on the vehicle they look bloated almost like there is

Ive just gone and looked at the 93 ZJ parts catalog (which I should have done to begin with ) According to the diagram there are 3 replaceable TREs - one at the Pitman arm and one at each end of the tie rod.

I put this on the jeep and it is pretty good design BUT it will roll the tie rod and make it feel a little loose. So I put some grade 8 58 washers took 2 thicker and 2 thinner total about 12 inch. I then cut an end off a radiator hose (1.5 ID) and slid that over the whole thing pressing it down onto the tie rod end. It works just great no roll and steering is very good. The rubber seals it up very

JEEP CHEROKEE Tie rod end puzzle

Forgive my ignorance. I have looked around for a while and not found a clear answer. Ive seen frequent links to this diagram httpwww.jeep4x4center.comjeep-st...herokee-xj.htm I always thought the rod that connects to the pitman arm was called the drag link and that the rod connecting the two front wheels together was called the tie rod. But in that diagram they appear to be named the other way around.

youre probably ok to drive it. A little grease leaking out means the seal is leaking. Pump some more grease in to replace it until you want to change it. The Moog site you referred to says the ES3094L is for the connection at the pitman arm. The ES3096L is for the drivers side at the knuckle. Just as an aside I bought all four Moog parts (the 3 small ends and the long drag link socket) for my jeeps

JEEP CHEROKEE what are my options for tie rodsteering upgrades without going OTK

im just looking to beef things up a bit so i dont have to worry about bending my stock tie rod like a wet noodle...i dont really want to go OTK right now so i dont have to hassle with moving the sway bar mounts..really all i need is the tierod but the drag link would be nice because i like seeing new parts under my jeep i was looking at the IRO tierod but it uses stock TREs..are they ok or a week link the price isnt bad..let me know what my options are..thanks

the zj tie rod upgrade uses a larger tie rod then the stock xj one obviously uses the same taper. Also the end that mounts to the drag link is built into the rod itself (which is solid) and isnt going anywhere unless you end up bending the entire steering. When I put my zj tr on i side-by-side compared the tie rod ends and there was a significant difference but obviously they werent 1 tons. If your

JEEP CHEROKEE Can a tie rod end make a pinging sound

I believe my tie rod end is going bad at the pittman arm. Seems to have a little play. However Im getting a loud metal on metal pingingpopping whenever a lot of force is on the steering like in ruts and only happens once. I put a used steering box in when I built a front bumper an broke the bolts in the original box. (20 saved some headache.) And the original steering box spacer was in 3 pieces so

piece of copper behind the plate youre welding up. The whole front end just feels better while driving now and the axle is centered better. I have not been able to duplicate the pingpop sound and i tried to put some pressure on the steering by driving it into loose sand and turning the wheel back and forth. I still get some creaking but Im thinking thats the rod end or the general oldness of the jeep.
