Hi,

During one of my regular oil change visits my dealer said my 99 20V needs inner and outer tie rods.
Price Quote:
Outer Tie Rod End - $90 * 2
Inner Tie Rod End - $82 * 2
Labor - $ 270
-------------------------------
Total - $614

I thought I'll get the parts from ebay or some online store and just pay labor. I looked around and couldn't find the tie rods by the same names (Inner and Outer Tie Rods). Instead I found two varities, Tie Rod Assembly and
Tie Rod End.
Link: http://replacement.autopartswarehou...r=1999&make=VW&model=PAS-T-001&part_name=null

So essentially my questions are:
1. Does Tie Rod Assembly = Inner Tie Rod + Outer Tie Rod?
2. Tie Rod End = Inner Tie Rod or Outer Tie Rod?

Any clues on where to buy them from?

Thanks,

Abhishek

tie rod assembly = inner and outer

tie rod end = just the outer

so your better off buyin the whole assembly if you want to save money. did they say if you need both sides or just one?

They asked to change both right and left

Hey,

They asked me to change both left and right. If I but the assembly is there anything else that I might need, like socket, bearing, rubber $%^&, etc.?

Thanks for your help.
