View Full Version : Stupid... stupid.. stupid question

looking to order a tie rod end online.

I need the driver side otter tie rod, and I'm about to order a LH (I assume they mean Left hand) outer tie rod.

question is, is it left hand inside the car or looking at the car?

When referencing left or right it's always from the driver's point of view. For example, our cars in the US are left hand drive (LHD).

No way - don't even try to delete the post. I have asked the same question many times. "driver's perspective or onlooker's perspective". Guess we both have a definitive answer now.
