Hi All: I finally took your advice and jacked up my car and wiggled
the wheels. I'm not pleased with what I found. The passanger side tie
rod is extremely loose, in fact I'm not sure its safe to drive to the
repair shop. Can this thing actually break?
Also, the driver side tie rod is not quite as loose, but the lower
ball joint is loose.
All in all, I will have new ball joints and tie rods installed (and
front end alingment) this week (ASAP)
Anyone hazzard a guess about how much it will cost?
I'm guessing between $400 -$ 500; maybe more if they find other worn
parts. I will also insist on suspension parts with greese fittings.
