Default name that part!

I posted about a month ago about my 01 se shifting and making noise in the rear when I hit bumps. I was told it was my rear shocks so I replaced them. the sound is still there and so is the shift. well I think I found the problem today... I had my car up on the lift today and saw some arms that look like tie rods on the rear a arms. the driver side was pretty loose but the passenger side was super super loose. the problem is, I don't know what the name of the part is. I thought it was a rear tie rod but I'm not sure. please help me identify the part and an estimate of the prices of. thanks guys

Default The 'urrr end' bouncing

Sounds like the rear outer tie rods need replacing from your description (both driver and passenger) considering there is any noticable amount of play in both.

I googled it and can't find any results for it. you got any advice for me to find them online? and how do they install? do they thread in like fronnt tie rods? or do I have to replace the whole assembly on both sides?

Here'* a similar thread.
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=86772 The links will no longer work.

Edit - The inside will attach to the cross-member near the center of the car. There'* a bolt/cam assembly for adjusting the rear alignment. Remove the hex nut, and pull the bolt out. Watch for falling parts, as the cam is likely to fall loose. The other end is removed just like a normal tie rod end. The part may also be referred to as the axle/hub carrier alignment link.

I called four parts shops today and none of them knew what the name of the part I need is. they said that the older models have a part like thar in the rear end but not the new ones... I am so confused. I'm calling the dealer tomorrow

Did you read the linked thread? It even has the part number listed that they'd be able to cross reference, not to mention the name of it.

Yeah, I probably could have worded it a bit better. I meant that the links within that link wouldn't work anymore.
