Need Some Aftermarket Help Please


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any place to buy aftermarket tie rods for my r32 gtr? and the prices for it.

Obviously i know i can go to nissan, but they are not my first choice because of cost.

i am in brisbane, but will be happy to look interstate.

I'm pretty certain "tie rods" and "tie rod ends" are the same thing. Try Repco for a set.

Tie rods are the actual rod thats screws into the rack

Tie rod ends are the bit that bolts to your hub

I have a pair of genuines here, paid about 105 each from memory.

tie rod ends I am hoping to get a pedders aftermarket replacement, cos ~160 ea for ends is highway robbery..

i had to do my ends too. my pockets got raided by nissan just for a pair. pedders dont do them, as of around 6 months ago. they screwed me over and over and over repeatedly.

didnt have any issues with the genuine nissan gear. i have a post in the DIY for tie rod ends.

yeh im going to try to get the "rack ends" through my mechanic. stuff paying $104 each.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
