99 s70 inner tie rods. Smi vs trw?

Post by c70_lindsay » Fri May 08, 2020 11:10 pm

Does any body know what the difference between the inner tie rods is between the smi and trw racks? I ordered two from napa, but the only sent one so ordered another from bumper to bumper. The treads are different ( on the steering rack end) so someone sent the wrong one! I ordered for an smi and the part numbers on both boxes check out.

Just ask again in the same thread, it is less confusing than posting the same question over and over.
