Default Tie-rods
Hi guys

I have a question/problem:
I had installed in my Raptor some aftermarket tie-rods, first RPG (the durations of this one was a few weeks) and now the Alpha Industries (two months), all takes a lot of play.....
I donīt know why happens this.....I use my Raptor 70% on road and 30% off road, can you help me?
Thanks
FDS

Something about Play? Perhaps play in the steering?

Play in the steering (with rpg a lot of it) and with alpha play in the bushing of the tie-rod and a lot of vibration over 110 km/h and all the wheels ara recently balance

Check the joints on the RPG tie rods. remove the boots on the inside joints. When you have the tires off the ground wiggle the tire back and forth. Watch the joints. If the ball is moving in the joint then they are warn out.Also look at the shaft on the steering where the inner tie rod joint attaches. That could be loose and cause your play in steering. If they aren't then you have a problem somewhere else but not the tie rod. The alpha ones are built just like the RPG's so I don't understand where you are thinking there's a bushing somewhere.
How many miles/KM do you have on trk? How many on the sets of tie rods?
Your vibration could be coming from anywhere on the truck. Example. a damaged or out of balance driveshaft. Have you had an alignment done on the truck? That's a good way to let someone else possibly find the problem. If they try and align the truck and there are loose ball joints or you have other warn out parts they will not be able to do the alignment correctly and should call you to let you know. They usually hunt down what parts need to be replaced so they can make more money. Any warn and loose steering components can cause loose sloppy steering.
Good luck.
