Today’s world is competitive. The necessity of market demand for the advanced technology is in lower price. It reflects in making the technology cheaper. Hence, every organization striving for cost effective product at a lower price and within minimum period of time to market. That keeps pressure on engineers to consistently strive to design the most effective products at, the lower price. The work is focus on functioning of the tie rod, the methods of its performance evaluation its optimization. The tie rod end job is to ensure the wheels are well aligned. It provides the adjustment of wheel alignment that keeps the inner and outer edges of the tires from wearing out. Hence, the tie rod functioning is crucial for steering as well as suspension performance of vehicle. Hollow Tie rod with 11.0mm ID is select after analysis, and further material analysis is done using 11.0 mm as ID. It gives 13.80% less weight than solid tie rod, without failure. Aluminum is suggested as applicable material after analysis.
