Tie Rod Trouble
Last month I found that I needed a new tie rod end for my 06 Predator. Well, after i ordered 2 new ends from Flee Bay, they did not fit mine. Same size and would start but new ones were fine thread and old ones are course. So I went to my local "Stealer" and ordered the tie rod center link. When i got it, I put the new tie rods on the new link, everything fit up perfect. Took off the old link and it is 3"+ longer than the new. I know the new Rod and end are for my 06. I looked up the part numbers and verified my self. I now that alot of the front end of my predator has been changed. Prob flipped sometime before i bought it. Could someone have put different A arm and tie rods on it when they rebuilt it after the crash? I dont know what parts they could have used except maybe from an 07. I noticed that they are a diff number. Could someone with an 07 measure there tie rod for me. Either pin to pin or just the linkage. Just let me know. Im $60 in to repairing the front end and have got now where.
