Always get ones correct for the specific vehicle. HD, 4X4 or not and more. If these have grease fittings and OE now you or someone didn't grease them enough for how it's used. IMO they should never wear out or already replaced with wrong ones messing you up.


Why did I say neglect? Because the interval for greasing really can't be listed by miles or time rather exposure. Many "quick-lube" or other places just ignore grease fittings or don't know they are there especially if a replacement had them and OE didn't. Both means neither were tended to along the way or it would be just one at a time,

I see no possible scenario that it would be OK to use different tie rod ends other than the original parts.
