Re: Tie rod

Hello, everyone.

I replaced tie-rod (rackend) today. I was able to replace it without any modificaiton. It quite fine.

Please attached some photos.

555 rackednd is just 7mm shorter. but no problem. I used heat gun to softer boots because the diameter of the shaft it bit larger. It was snowing today and it was cold inside the garage so I turned on the heater.

I was able to easily install it by warming it up a bit.

A 32mm spanner is required to remove the original rack end without removing the rack from the vehicle. Furthermore, a 30mm thin spanner is required to attach the 555. I modified my old spanner to whittled it down a bit.

The wobbling of the wheel is gone and it feels very good.

I also removed other size of rackend and compare both. It looks quite same though part number is different.

34140PA000 Left/Passenger side
34140PA010 Right/Driver side

Pls note that Right size is Driver side for JDM cars.

I ordered one more for right side today.

I hope this information is useful to everyone.

Re: Tie rod


I replaced right side too. And, there were no problem to attach it. The left and right genuine part numbers are different, but they are the same and there seems to be no problem at all.

I adjusted the toe-in to almost 0 and did a test run. There are individual differences in preferences for toe-in adjustment values, but I prefer it as close to 0 as possible.

This is my impression after running about 100km today.

- The non-reactive area around the center of the steering wheel position has almost disappeared. At the same time, road irregularities can now be felt more through the steering wheel.
- Acceleration is now smoother. In particular, the distance traveled by coasting with the accelerator off has become so long that you can clearly see it. In other words, you can feel that the running resistance is reduced.

I realized once again the importance of this part.

Re: Tie rod

Excellent work. It must be nice to work on an SVX that is so rust free underneath.

They are special order from Moog/Beck Arnley. I have ordered a set and was advised that the lead time is 10 to 12 weeks. If I can remember to update this, I will when they actually arrive.

Re: Tie rod

Cross-posting here for info purposes and because my thread was in the Classifieds section. I am in the process of checking out a possible alternative to the outer tie rod (end).

"I looked around online and measured the new OE right unit once it arrived. 14mm x1.5 thread coming in from the inner tie rod, 12 x 1.25 going into the hub.

By crawling the 555 parts listings, and ebay, I'm guessing 555 Sankei SE-t021L & se-t021R may work. These are parts to fit the 05-11 Yaris and others, one OE Toyota part that comes up similar is 45047-59135.

I found a se-t021r on ebay for $26, so I'm ordering that to compare side by side with the new OE unit I got from Subaru. I also have a replacement steering rack off my car that I can play with/test fit.

I'll post my findings once the part arrives."
