Some technical info on the Tie rod ends…

• Boot Fitment
Tie rod end boots have been redesigned to include internal metal spring rings, top and bottom. The inclusion of these rings ensures that the boot has a more secure and neat fit, thus offering greater resistance to contaminants.

• Boot Material
The material of the dust boots has been changed to a 100% CR neoprene. This new material is treated for high ozone and weather resistance, low flammability, and high oil, fuel and chemical tolerance, offering greater resistance to contaminants and increased longevity.

• Ball Pin – Material


Being one of the most critical components of any steering or suspension product, a great deal of time has been spent refining the ball pin. The ball pins on new items are now being manufactured from SCM435 molybdenum and chromium alloy steel.

• Ball Pin – Hardness
Heat treatment is applied to the ball studs making the hardness of the ball surface 20-25 Rockwell with depth of .3-.5mm. This hardening process aids the ball stud in reducing wear, providing for longer life of the component, and allowing the factory to offer their 3 year 100,000km Warranty.

• Ball Pin – Movement
Newly manufactured items also includes an extra production process in the ball pin called a ‘mirror treatment’. This finish involves the ball being polished to a radius tolerance of 0.0015mm. The polishing process gives the final ball stud a superior surface, and much smoother movement during rotation.

• Encapsulation
Over 90% of the new products coming through are now fully encapsulated, packed with high quality French Molybdenum Disulphide Grease. Full encapsulation offers zero movement in the ball stud, unlike the older style metal to metal designs. The full encapsulation provides for a smoother and quieter operation, and subsequent increased longevity.

Full encapsulation also means that there is no need for grease nipples. Many alternative brands offer encapsulated product, but still offer the provision for greasing with a grease nipple, which is unnecessary. If actually greased in these circumstances, the grease has nowhere to go, and if pressure is continued, greasing can result in the dislocation of the base plate and subsequent failure of the joint.

Where Roadsafe’s new product is fully encapsulated it is supplied without grease nipples.

• Nylon Seat
The nylon seat supplied in the fully encapsulated product is manufactured from nylon impregnated with molybdenum disulphide, again for improved smoothness and wear characteristics.

• Phosphate Coating
You might also notice a change in the general appearance of some of the products. The entire part (with the exception of the boot) are treated with a phosphate coating, giving them a smooth black appearance, forming a protective cover to permanently protect the steel surface from corrosion.

To determine if you need to replace the Tie Rod end on your Nissan Patrol, have someone turn the steering wheel for you from side to side, It does not to be much, just enough to take up the load, Whilst they are doing this, And you are underneath, If you see or feel excessive movement you will need to replace them, Tie Rod ends are Roadworthy item.

When replacing, mark the original unit on the arm, measure from pin to pin, remove the worn Tie rod end, and replace with new one, thread it on to the mark you made, double check the measurement from pin to pin, Then install the arm, tighten the castle nut, ensure you replace the split pin.

If you are not totally comfortable with the measurement, it is recommended to get a professional Wheel alignment.
