i need some serious help please guys!

i brought a new inner tie rod for my EK as the one on my car has play in the joint, when i went to install the new tie rod i noticed the inner thread was a different pitch and was larger in diameter!

i've double checked with the company i got the tie rod of and it id definitly the right part!

my question to you:

i suspect my car could have a DC2 rack, do these use a different size tie rod to rack size?

please help this is doing my head in,as i cant get my car on the road until i source a new tie rod that WILL FIT my car :(

thanks guys :)

Honda thread pitch are usually 1.5
1.25 are usually used by Toyota.

Did you buy an original Honda or OEM part?

Part number for the original is 53010-S04-000
