What are my opinions? Well my front & rear tie rods are original, plus
they have grease fitting on them. Greased every 3000 miles.
If you say you haven't hit curbs & big pot holes then your pregreased
from the factory tie rods probably dried up & wore out
I forget what manufacturer it was in the 60's that eliminated grese
fittings from a particular vehicle. The cab companies sqwaked like hell
becasue of constant ball joint & tie rod replacements. The cab companies
threatened to buy a different manufacturers vehicle and then the cars
began being built with greaseable front end parts again.
