Easy Tie Rod repair by hoser.. Bent tie rods? no problem here is a easy fix I have used for since 1996 on my Pilot, straighten out the bent rods and slip them into a thin wall 3/4" OD tubing then weld the ends, you have to weld them or the end will break when you hit something the tubing becomes a lever when NOT welded, if you didn't weld yours all the way around and it breaks don't come crying to me I have abused mine since 1996 and nothing else has bent or broke, when someone tells you "but something has to give that is why Honda made them the part to bend" have them bring you the facts that something else will break there are plenty of doom and gloom theorist saying other parts will break but nobody has seen it happen after all these years again I have been abusing mine since 1996 without a single problem problem or negative affect.
