Is there a standard number of revolutions for a tie rod end? If not about how many. The vehicle has 118,000 miles on it.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Brad, When replacing a tie rod end, I always count how many turns it takes to come off. Then, I put the new one on with the same amount of turns. This is not a sure way of having the correct alignment. I always do recommend you do an alignment after replacing a tie rod. Counting the turns just usually gets you pretty close to where it needs to be. Suzanne
