Tie-rod ends...just don't last!

I don't get it...I only get maybe 4 years and 35-40K out of them. I just put new ones on again...MOOG.
They were free (lifetime) except my labor and agravation!
F'ers had all kind of play in them...and I grease every 1,500 miles. Yes the other steering components are tight...EVERYTHING was new in 02.

PS maybe the 255/85R16 tires chew them up /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif

Yep, my tie rod ends are a year old and already one has failed. I drive some pretty bumpy mountain logging roads in mine but 1 year is rediculous. I also had a ball joint fail in under a year. I think these crap aftermarket parts must be designed for the owner who is replacing his vehicle every year or two.
