Tie rod question
I had some new tires installed today, but the front end could not be
aligned because the tie rods are apparantly frozen in place. They said
they could heat them up and try, but if they broke I would be stuck for
the weekend in the town I was visiting about 170 miles from home.
Believe me, I have a good reason for why I had this done so far away
and It has something to do with bald Continentals, snow, and four brand
new Michelin MXV4's that were free (to me at least). Question- Do I try
and have the tie rods heated and then re-use them, or should I go ahead
and spend the money to replace them? Since I'm heading into my last
semester of college, I'd prefer to do the former, but I'm wondering if
that could be dangerous. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
