Tie Rod End Triumph TR7 and TR8. Two are needed per car. Cross reference # 071-402.

Sometimes these parts are refereed to as tracking rods, but here in the States they are more commonly known as tie rods. Tie Rods ends for the TR7, TR8 are an extremely important part of the Triumph's steering system. These Tie Rod Ends "tie" the front wheels together so that they will turn together equally. If for some reason a tie rod breaks or disintegrates, the driver can lose control of their TR7, TR8, possibly causing an accident or crash. This makes the tie rod ends for the Triumph a safety item that must to be checked regularly and replaced if excessively worn or has a torn boot. Most Tie rods used for road driving have a long-life, but they do need to be checked periodically for wear, particularly on the joint end. The threaded part of the rod itself does not wear out, but the tie rod joint side will wear out with time and use. Alway check your tie rod ends on your TR7, TR8 when your are changing the fluids in your car or lubricating other joints, as the tie rod ends are a lube point on most vehicles. Worn tie rods must be replaced. If you do allow the tie rod ends to wear excessively, it affects the steering and handling of your TR7 or TR8. This will by very apparent and will be noticed by the car tending to wander, forcing you the drive to make constant steering corrections when going down a straight highway. And in extreme cases when wear is allowed to go on for a longtime worn tie rod ends will even cause uneven wear on the tires.
