Bad tie rod end

Looks like the tie rod end is bad. I am not sure of the after market company. Someone from another forum suggested it was Poly Performance. I am trying to find a replacement for it and having zero luck. Does anyone here know? Is that a stock part or not?? TIA! It's on a 07 Rubicon.

Thanks They were very helpful. Their part number is PMP-EX2234L or R? Looks like the Moog replacement part # is ES2010L or R. Getting them both from Napa to be sure. They are for a 1 ton GM.

I think that part will not work. I also think the only place you are going to get a EX2234L is from Poly. Part's Mike claims to have them... but when you call, that is not the case. I have contacted at least six different parts counters and all of them claim this part does not exist (EX2234L).

Not sure why.... but Poly seems to have a special supplier of this mysterious part.

When you order a replacement, I suggest getting a spare to keep in your tool box, since if you break, it might be the only one you're going to find in a pinch.

The common available part is an ES2234R, same thing but a RH thread. The EX2234L is the same but with a LH thread, so it is a custom part that is what we use on the tie rod and drag link. We stock them, they are not that expensive

Those of you that think you know everything really annoy those of us that do!

currie is on the bottom stock on top



i'm not saying poly's are bad. bang for buck they're probably better value than the currie. but the currie are just BAD ASS. even more so in person. fully rebuildable AND flippable! (we flipped the drag link for a "steering correction")

The ES-2010L from Napa is a good part for the passenger side PP tie rod, it fits perfectly. I am not sure if the driver's side is the same or is it the (R) - right hand thread.

Wow that Curry one is huge! And its a solid bar all the way through! I love my Poly tie rod but damn that is nice..

Also looks like you can rebuild the Curry without needing to re-thread the end, saving you an alignment.
