Hello. The short answer is no. Tie rods are part of your steering system. They are integral to your cars ability to drive straight and turn. I guess in some sense they contribute to the stability of your car, but by the strictest definition, they are not a stabilizer.
A stabilizer is a generic term that can be applied to many different components. Sway bars, sway bar end links, shock, struts, engine mounts all could be described as a stabilizer. They all play a part in controlling the cars sway and or motion that is required for us to be able to actually drive our cars. With these components, which are part of a greater system, we would not have much control over our cars. If you were to attempt to drive a car without shock or struts, you would be bouncing all over the road like a basketball. It isn’t fun at all.
Manufacturers will call many components a stabilizer, but they often have more specific names attributed to them by other groups. If you need help with an inspection, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your suspension.
