I got TRW replacement tie rods, stingy pricks don't include new lock tab washers, I take it Fraud Spare Parts will be the only place then?

I know some wont agree with me here but all i did was after they were out was bend them flat and fit them back on 180 deg so as a new part of the washer can be bent over. Around 80,000 k's later ive had no rack ends fall out....

I guess there is no harm in using them twice but no more than that, but then again the car itself would be worn out by then after 2 sets of rack ends!!

I went back to work and got the cheaper Silverline brand ones, and suprisingly they came with the washers, but not the nuts (the TRW ones come with the nuts). But I didn't really wanna use them as there cheaper and probably inferior quality.
So I went to Fraud Spare Parts (Tilford down here) and they had some, $9.74 for the pair which isn't too bad.

$41 for thje pair is a good price. I get my stuff for not much more than cost being an employee, and it wasn't that much lower...
