I have noticed the tie-rod ends on my 98 rt are completely different than the ones you get from Advance/O'Reilly, they fit but are 1/2 inch shorter. Anyone know why?

Well I currently work for Advance, and even in the books it shows this one part number, it works but I just did not get why it would change so much.

They are factory stamped, lol I have noticed little stuff they have changed for instance the new fuel pump I put in it had a spade for a ground terminal and the factory didn't. Amazing car but pain in the ass when working on it Laughing

I haven't found my car a pain in the ass while working on it. Mine has that ground terminal already on it and it hasn't had a fuel pump swap. Try looking for another set of tie rods. The shorter ones can't be good

For parts that stores don't carry, yeah Dealer or Junk yard.
Other than that, unless it's a 50%+ Discount, it's still cheaper and mor efficient to go to the parts store.


$300 for Shift cables.
$59 for a factory "neon" trunk emblem.

Fuck the dealer lol
