Default Need help finding a part

I broke a ball joint on my tie rod.. You can guess which one.. The one you can't replace. I need to find a stock cross over steering arm for a samurai and I have had no luck at all.

Give us the specifics like what year, to start with.

A pic will always help too.

Its the steering arm that joins the two spindles together. Has a total of three ball joints on it. Two of which are not replaceable and the other one is. Called every junk yard around here not one has a samurai.

You STILL haven't given us the year.

Parts may differ accordingly.

Did you try...

Its a 87' I think they might have the part I need..

Its under the tie rod part. The part I need is the rod that has two ball joints on the left and one on the right. The right side being replaceable.

Helpful hint: When describing auto parts, always refer to R/L as seen from the rear of the vehicle, or, driver's seat. It will avoid confusion and getting the wrong part.

What you want is the Tie Rod-Right.

The old Suzuki part number is 48870-83300. Unfortunately, SW Autogroup ( New Used Car Dealer | SouthWest Auto Group | Ford Nissan Mitsubishi Suzuki | Weatherford, TX serving Fort Worth ) has taken down their Suzuki parts webpages, otherwise, I could have found it for you there. It was a great resource and fast to locate items by part number. You could call them and give the part number. They might be able to help you out. Its not cheap. Will run you close to $200 delivered. Sometimes, it will save you time, money and trouble, just replacing the stock parts, instead of changing a bunch of stuff, to make aftermarket parts work.
You can look here, also. https://www.suzukiautoparts.com/catalogs.html
The part won't come up by using the part number search. You'll have to drill down go through all the menus. Its in the steering group.


Good luck to you.

Thanks for posting that, Max.
That is the same online system that SW used to use.
I tried a Google search for Online Suzuki Parts and those guys didn't show up.
Looks like their prices run about 10% above what SW used to charge, but its worth it to have a new source of OEM parts.

Sometimes the Euro market has equivelent parts, could be problematic.
4881081a01- BALL JOINT (Ball joint) - 4881060a0048810833004881085c004 - Suzuki S410 (Spain VS->) - Euro4x4parts.com
26.10 € is about 36 US. Shipping, depending on the method chosen, can triple the price - still could be cheaper.
