Hello has anyone replaced the inner tie rods to come find out there is no lock washer? This “lock washer” I mention is #25 from the fsm. Should I buy one from Infiniti? Please let me know your experiences.
I believe that lock washer is very necessary, as it keeps the tie rod from potentially loosening from the rack. New ones came with the aftermarket inner tie rods I installed. Moog, if I remember correctly. The old one was in place. It has to be bent off the head of the tie rod so that the tie rod can be removed.
Yes and no.
Seems you can use thread lock only on the threads - seems acceptable with some mechanics.
Yes, I got the lock separately from Infiniti parts and got a "rebate" from the company that sold me the inner tie rod after I showed to them my receipt from Infiniti.
