    I bent the tie rod *slightly* yesterday. Very minor. I'm going to replace it, but I'm leaving on vacation in 3 days and I don't think I'll be able to get a new one by then. It's 700 miles round trip. These vehicles don't align perfectly, so do you think it's a big deal? Other than a little more tire wear, any other problems? It is a very minor bend. Handled same as always. Thanks. Brian

    I would worry too much. When you get around to replacing it you may what to get a RockRod from www.rockstomper.com You will break the tie rod end before bending this one!!
    Good Luck
