  • Kia Rio Rack and Pinion Swap - Tie Rod Ends

    Hey guys,

    Sorry, tried searching but it went poorly since the search can't handle 3 letter words very well (didn't work even with the * trick).

    I'm going to be swapping the rack in my 89 to the Kia Rio rack upgrade (my car came with the aluminum rack so I'm all set with mounts and such) but I need to buy new tie rod ends for it. I'm using Capri knuckles but the outer tie rod ends from the Festiva seem to fit them well so I would just use those, but I need to know what inners I need. Is it just any 90-93 rack and pinion tie rod ends or something different?

      Your 90-93 inners should work fine.

        Sounds good. I need to buy new ones because my old ones are very sloppy. Thanks!

          If it were me, I would hold off if I could and do the rack swap while the engine is out. It sure make the job a lot easier.

            Yeah the engine is out right now, hahaha. That's what I meant.
