Need a new tie rod: Another stock one or aftermarket?

Thanks in advance for all the awesome responses I always get here on this forum.

Need a new tie rod, mine is shot due to rust. I can get another stock one for around 120, a ruff stuff one for 150, or a rk/synergy for over 300. Definitely don't wanna drop that cash on it as I don't mess around with rocks.

Some guys say go aftermarket, some guys (including one from QT) say that the stock one would be fine for what I do. I always like to get opinions from here... whatddaya think?

If rust is the only thing that Got your stock unit I am assuming you have had it a while without damaging it or needing to upgrade. That being said going back stock sounds like a great option.

Buy 2 of the stock ones. If #1 fails your spare will save you.

Jaker, did you have to ream anything? Or was it measure, cut, weld the ends in, and install? I bent my stock tie rod and I think I've got it adjusted back to correct toe, but am heading to CO the last week in August and don't really want to be 1,000 miles from home with a boomeranged tie rod (if that were to happen).

Excellent. I think I'm going to order the kit once I get confirmation that I've got someone to weld it up for me.
