INNER TIE ROD
Inner tie rod : The inner tie rod is a pivot point at the rack n pinion or on a tie rod assembly furthest from the wheel. It allows the steering to flex while still keeping the wheel connected. Inner tie rods use a left and a right. If the vehicle hits a bump and you are steering, the inner tie rod helps the vehicle’s steering to flex with the suspension.
When an inner tie rod is going bad, you may experience looseness in the steering, hear clanking sounds when hitting bumps in the road. In an extreme condition, the steering can be disconnected in the event of catastrophic failure in the inner tie rod end.
