Nissan Tie Rod ends

    Recommended Posts

    Hi.

    Just got me two original Nissan tie rod ends for my 260Z on Ebay.

    They have small bolts on the ends where the grease nippels go.

    My question is, do these tie rod ends com pre-greased from Nissan?

    Thanks :nervous:

    As a general rule....No. Just enough to keep them from rusting and or metal to metal contact while on the self. Same thing with the U-Joints for the half-shafts. Just enough to keep the bearings from falling out. Would lube them up good after you install them....

    Not to hijack, but anyone buy the tie rod ends from Napa or somewhere without a grease fitting?

    Why would you do that? I would much rather be able to grease the fittings as needed. I just replaced the tie rod ends on my car after at least 100,000 miles.
