154 1301 05 Piggy Rising New Tie Rod Ends

After slinging on a set of 36-inch tires, we decided it was probably prudent to swap out all four tie-rod ends for new Moog units from the local parts store. Although Piggy only has 90,000 miles on the odometer, some of these steering parts might just be original—and consequently 35 years old. If they are just a little bit worn, the bigger tires and a little wheeling will find the weak link in the system. We like steering, and don’t want to find out that there is an issue while we are hurtling down the highway.
