Bent Factory Thin Wall Tie Rod

7 of 15
A bent factory thin-wall tie rod that's only been straightened will generally not hold up till the end of the trail. It will bend again. The best way to repair this failure is to straighten it and then sleeve it with the handle from a Hi-Lift jack. No welding needed. One of the tie rod ends will need to be removed to slip on the handle.
