no...no tie rod end needed. your'e not swapping suspension so your'e fine. But rsx does have 16mm knuckles though...so your current suspension will need to be modified aka drilled out to fit the bigger crash bolts.I just bought a 5 lug swap for $250 dude gave me front and rear spindles, rotors, pads, brake lines , brackets, brake lines , with spc cambbers. Question is I have an 01 civic, do i need the tie end rods from the rsx ? I remember reading a thread but i can't find the one with the info on this...
