a few days ago in shop class i put my car up on the hoist to check a few things. I went up to my tires, and heres what i found. I put one had on each side of each tire, and could move them back and fourth a fair ammount on both tires on the left side, the rear one being the worst. My shop teacher had a good look, and told me all 4 tie rod ends were finished..okay i can live with that. So looks liks soon i will be changing these. Im going to go with MOOG suspension parts, as they are only 63.75 a piece as compared to the dealerships 135.50 a piece. I could go with the el cheapo 35 dollar ones, but that would be a waste of my money and time install that crap!
When i phoned the parts store, they asked if i needed inner or outter tie rods...All we checked were the ones right near the wheel on the rod its self..
