Adjustable Heavy Duty Tie Rod
Nissan Y60 GQ Patrol
This listing is for one brand new Adjustable Tie
Rod arm (Track - Rock Rod) suit all GQ Models; we also have GU Models & Land
Cruiser in our store,
This is the arm
that runs behind the diff from left to right; it is designed to keep the wheels
parallel ensuring they follow the same wheel track. If you launch the front of
your Patrol over an obstacle, be it a rock or tree, when it lands it has to land
on something right? If it’s not the diff housing it will most likely be the Tie
Rod Arm, if this breaks you will not be driving home in a straight line without
some handy bush mechanics.
Some of its features are...
- It is heavy duty with a 32mm Outside Diameter and
a 6.5mm wall thickness. They are significantly stronger than standard - and
that's what you need in an arm that is positioned behind the front diff.
- It is adjustable, it may be lengthened or
shortened to keep wheel toe correct.
- Supplied with Heavy duty, Greasable Female GU
style Tie Rod Ends – so replaceable if need be.
- Supplied with new Split pins & Castle

and make sure you put the new supplied split pin in!!!
Generally they shouldn’t take long to change over. If
you know you are going to do it soon, Give each side a few applications of WD-40
A few mm adjustment can make a fair amount of
difference so it is important to be as specific as possible, When you have
finished if you are not happy with the Wheel, pull to the side, ect, it is
recommended to get a professional wheel alignment.
