Tein Tie Rod W/ Tie Rod Ends...

So yea i decided to buy them (already did) and was curious about any experiences if anybody has them. I hear that KAZAMA makes only the tie rod ends. Tein makes both but is there any real advantage or disadvantage between having tie rod ends only compared to tie rod w tie rod ends? I got this mod since i kinda bent it with the last crash... thanks for the advice!

The advantage is that the whole tie rod, including the end, is bigger and beefier, instead of just the end where it mounts.

I received the parts and hey not bad. Haven't got them installed since im still waiting for my tein tension rods to arrive in the mail. I really jut wanna do it all in one shot so wouldn't need to keep getting constant alignments. A buddy of mine has these different end links made my a company known as "KTS" and on the end link both sides have a rubber mount except the teins only have 1. Is there any real significant difference on these?

KTS is Über japaness tunner. Them and the Kazama's are almost identicail except the kts are blue and the kazams are red. Either piece is a great part. And dont buy parts for your car off ebay that have no name!

I got attacked by a curb last month and the only thing that didnt break was the Tie rods and the ends. The TC rods broke right were they mount to the front lower control arms. Tein states that they will break there any ways.
