Very stout tie rod end, suprised at the price!

The part I got fit my vehicle perfectly without issue (my tie rod ends were completely busted) and resolved some steering play and vibration issues. But two things bothered me: these seem just a little smaller in size than the OEM tie rod ends, and they are NOT secured by cotter pins! These come with a lock nut and not a special cotter pin mechanism - the threads don't even have a hole for a pin should you want to use your old nuts and pins, so the picture is definitnely misleading (mine were all black with no cotter pins). Just something to watch out for if that's something that bothers you too.
Great product, no problems!
Super easy to replace, don't pay what the shop wants!
