    i dont know the part # but you are correct that one end is a part of the entire rod. in order to simply replace that end, the rod needs to be replaced as well.

    I have my factory original tie rod i'd be willing to sell. I updated to a 1.5" DOM tie rod with larger ends so i don't need it anymore. Make me an offer and come pic it up here in Fremont.

    EDIT: These were replaced just a couple years ago and are still good.

    here is a pic, does it look like it needs replacing? The passenger side is very much gone so no question there.

    I would just replace both at the same time. If you can look into getting a beefier replacement rod from ORD or something if the price is similar. I believe for around $200 I got a new 1.5" tie rod and new ends. The aftermarket tie rod ends thread in to the tube. The tie rod is tapped at both ends.

    I would personally just replace the whole tierod with a beefy unit. I bought my 1.5" .375 wall tierod 5 years ago and as far as I can tell I have not been able to bend it yet and the TRE's still seem to be in great shape. I am very happy with it and have smacked the hell out of it and it doesn't even flinch.
