Good afternoon,

I went to align my 1990 corolla and the alignment shop said i had loose rackend and wornout sway bay bushings.

I bought the steering rack ends axial rod and the part number is 45503-29365. When i look it up online it says this is for corolla e100. Was the previous rack end from a corolla e100? Or does this part number also fit a corolla e90?

The sway bar bushings that came off the sway bar are from a kia. Doed aht mean the sway bar is from a kia? Or only the bushings are from a kia? The original corolla bushings for a corolla e90 are smaller than kia bushings. I wonde if i should try to put the oem toyota bushings on the sway bar?

Would having sway bar bushings from a kia pride affect alignment or ride and how woiud they differ from having oem toyota sway bar bushings if indeed the sway bar on the corolla is indeed the oe swaybar?

Cheers

Jorge

I saw the only difference between the e100 rackend is that it is 10 mm longer than the e90 rackend. I saw that the e90 rackend that was installed was cut. I wonder why they cut it, was it maybe a e100 rackend that was cut?

Cheers

Based on the packaging this tie rod end is Imitation most likely.

It appears the rackend are adapted.

Does anyone know which rackend has length of around 42 mm and of 24 mm?

Why does the 90 corolla lhd which was originally rhd have the driver side rackend of 24 cm length and the passenger side rackend of 42 cm length? Does the different length rackend have to do with the fact that the steering rack appears to have been adapted when the change of rhd to lhd was made?

Cheers
