    well to my way of thinking they have both covered the same milage ones gone the other should not be far behind going . you have to go and buy one so you may as well buy two you have the tools out your hands are already dirty so do both then you should have the tracking done then you have two new track rod ends fitted and tracked jobs a gudon

    They may have both covered the same mileage but they may not have ,
    have they or one ever been changed before
    also both sides of the car dont get the same forces due to bumps etc
    and personally theres no way i would change a perfectly good part ,
    in my job i change loads of suspension components and you may change one side and never change the other
    just change the one thats gone fix the other if or when its gone unless you have money to burn.
