Tie Rod Ends For A Gtr - Where To Buy Cheapest?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am after some Tie Rod Ends for my R33 GTR.

The genuine nissan ones are around $100 each, are there cheaper after market alternative's available?

Also is it best practice to just replace the worn out one, or replace both left and right?

Called them up, said they are marked for the R33 GTs-T, and in the comments says "Will not fit R33 GTR"...dammit lol.

I might go and grab them anyway as i am in the area. If they fit, they fit. Otherwise can return.

$35 like you said.

Have you used those ones on a R33 GTR before xalmon?

How much where they from pedders? I just picked up the ones from bursons. They are road safe brand and say they suit R32,300zx. Hopefully they fit! $70 for two

Checked out the ones i got from Bursons.

No go, they are heaps smaller then the ones i have on there.

Didn't even bother to fully open them up as they won't fit.

Ill try pedders, otherwise I think i will just go genuine from Nissan for $100 each :(

Definatley looked on eBay, I do need the outer tie rod ends.

the ones being sold for the R33 GTR, are not compatible. More so of a scam/false advertising. Check out the pics in both the R33 "4WD" and RWD ones, pics are of the same item. They are the exact same ones i got from Bursons. Probably sweet for a R33 GTS-T, but the R33 GTR part is different. Its quite bigger physically. Its a bit fatter and the thread at the top is longer.

I have done a search on a forums for the ones sold on eBay, found a user stating they don't fit. He could have gotten his money back, but as usual you have to pay return shipping. Probably voiding any effort of a refund.

Ended up just ordered some in over the phone from my local nissan dealership.

$111 for one >_<

Not sure if ill do the other one at the moment, as it has no play....

    • medium amateur ?? VCT rather have than not and they NEO heads anyway... agree shouldnt be down there in revs agree but one  does stuff up at times and does help 😁
    • Sorry this is late, but I just changed mine on the GTT. They are 6.5T  I tried T5 at the start, they don't fit nicely and is all loosely goosey. T6.5 from eBay and it works fine
    • >complete amateur >1:24 at Winton laggy massive HP RWD R32 I dunno about the first part I would argue this use case probably doesn't need VCT, won't be in the rev range that it would ever be active!
    • Last weekend I changed out the noisy bearing in the rear. It went fine except the axle was super stuck in the hub. I eventually got it all swapped out over two days. The car is so much quieter but the ABS light came on. I freaked out thinking I'd put the bearing in backwards or used one without the integrated magnet for the speed sensor (lower E90's use a ring attached to the axle rather than built into the bearing). I checked the 2nd bearing I got, seems I got it right (black side in first). I bought a new Bosch speed sensor from eBay which arrived today, 10 mins to fit and cleared codes. No more ABS light.  My gut says I probably damaged it when pressing the bearings in and out as it kinda hangs in a bad spot - i should have removed it. Anyway, whatever, its quiet and fixed. I think the front bearings are ready for changing now, I can hear very slight noise that would have been masked by the dead rear one. Front ones are bolt in thankfully. Also bought the Nolathane rear subframe bushes and a Whiteline 16mm rear sway bar (OE is 13mm). I had this bar on my 330i but cbf'd removing it so just got another. The subframe needs to be lowered to fit the bar so i'll do bushes and bar at the same time. I was really temped to get solid aluminium bushes but they are really expensive and the whole subframe has to come out, not just be dropped which is not something I'm keen to do.
