    I'm same boat as you were Jackal @lee and @JACKAL awesome write ups with a couple great tips. Humor was added bonus. I especially like the air box clamp that's a great idea way better then hose clamp. I figured I'd look it up and there it is.:)

    It's a standard Honda part.

    With that SR3 part number I would bet it's a car part.
    Go to amazon, search the part number above and get free shipping.

    Thanks Much. And Awesome post on the procedure! Did you worry about torque specs when re-installing?

    Torque specs?
    Haha, no I'm a little ham fisted when it comes to turning wrenches.
    I worried about the tie rod end in to the rack but I didn't have any way to check it.
    Also I didn't want to crank on the end of the rack and hurt something.
    Make sure the 'lock' washer is set and it should be ok.

    My original popped off and was still on the axel and still connected, figured how it worked, released it, I cleaned it up and with a big pair of channel locks re installed it. Will be watching it closely!

    Are there different sizes (similar to part 49) that replace the tie rod band? I ordered what I thought was the correct part here a while back to replace the bands but they’re waaaay too big.

    We talkin about this guy?
    myHJ1joOb9OIxKNPiSpcmPw.jpg
    The picture is just something I found on the net - DON'T COPY THE PART # FROM THE PICTURE!

    Official part is Honda part # 95018-46250, BAND, AIR CLEANER CONNECTING TUBE (46).
    The second part of the part # starts off '-46'.
    The 46 is the diameter in mm, the part in the picture is a 54mm diameter .

    Do you have the correct part?
    You didn't get the aftermarket part ordered from the same place you got your rear axles from did you?

    You guy's really bend that many tie rods? I have and will continue to hit stuff ask tigermark about the tree that I knocked down, think it took a lot of hits before I came along. Do you bend them with stock tire sizes? I have busted tires and broke rear view mirrors from impacts, but never bent a tie rod??????

    I have yet to bend one but I have a feeling I can make a few hundred each off @JTW, supply and demand being what they will be .

    Joking aside, I figure sooner or later I’ll screw up and bend one somehow. @joeymt33 bent one somewhere he shouldn’t have bent one but caught the wheel just right and taco’d it. OR someone will bend one and we will need to fix it, they are $20 and they bend so why not have a couple of spares.

    Hey f***er... I’ve already got 2 spares! Lol

    One thing we should toss in are a couple front diff seals. Both of the front springs around the back of the seal came out when I removed the stock fronts. Luckily, I ordered a couple extras back after the overland to replace when I did the front axle!

    I think you can go a long time and never bend one.. seems to freak situations that cause it to happen. @drfubar was able to get @Tigermark bending his on camera - the rear of his front tire just rubbed a tree slightly as he was also turning and bam... bent tie rod. You have to pay attention in the video to notice when it happens.

    I busted a boot about this time last year and had to wait 2 weeks for replacement so I went ahead and ordered a front and rear kit to keep at the house. On big trips I’ll bring with me. - granted I have never tried to change one.. but I also know there would be multiple people jumping in to help out on a Hondasxs trip.

    Yeah.. I have a couple stock boots kits. I don’t know if they fit the new axles though
