    Tie rods!!

    Having some issues finding quality tie rod ends (inner and outer) I don't think this set has lasted a year and may have gotten a year out of the last set. I know they make a crazy heavy duty set for the 2500/3500 trucks but what about the 1500 can't seem to find anything. 07 silverado classic!!

    Do you have a lift kit or big wheels/tires that is causing you to burn through tie rods? The OEM ones have been working great for me. I have had issues with the cheap Autozone ones and the AcDelco ones with the blue grease boots.

    I have oversized tires but not to big. The first set was a.c. Delco and the second set was some cheap ones I don't remember where I got them from. I thought the a.c. Delco was the oem parts.

    There is sometimes a difference between the AcDelco stuff and OEM stuff. The OEM stuff comes in a plain cardboard box. AcDelco in the blue and white box.
