Question about 1994 Ford Aerostar Extended

1 Answer

94 ford aerostar tierod

Thats it. the side oppisite the ball joint attaches to the steering cylinder under the dust grommit by a ball that is encapsulated with a long hollow nut that keeps the ball from coming out of the nut by being a little smaller than the tie rod ball.

my question now is it looks like there is a small pin i think locking the encapsulating nut from backing off of the cylinder rod by passing through the cylinder rod. this pin looks like a rivet. does it need to be grinded flush or drilled and pushed out? and then the nut just loosenes from the cylinder rod freeing the tie rod?

I replaced my tierod on the passenger front.there is still some play in the left to right there is also a humming sound at speeds 40+mph. it's coming from the hub bearing or ball joint.

Any wear or play in a bush or rod usually gives a 'knock' or causes vibration, not a humming noise.
If there's play in the steering wheel that may be due to a worn steering rack and pinion.

A worn ball joint can cause a 'crack' noise and depending on the wear, vibration that will be felt through the steering wheel. A worn ball joint can also cause the car to pull to one side.

A humming noise suggests it is either a brake rotor/pad, or a worn driveshaft or wheel bearing.

How to change driver side control arm

Take the wheel out, undo steering tierod end from hub, undo the bottom ball joint under the hub and lever the control arm down with a lever bar or pry bar and move away the hub from ball joint. You can now undo the control arm from the subframe.
Some models have 3 bolts on the control arm that separates ball joint, you can undo them as well without touching the ball joint. But most of them have rivets instead of bolts.

My 2004 f 150 Lairat 2x4 has developed heavy steering and the steering wheel dosen't return completely and is also heavy and sluggish. The fluid level is normal and I had my mechanis do a quick tierod and...

It's not usually the case when the tierod ends go on such a young vehicle. It is most likely the power steering pump. The cost is usually under $1000

Yep....agreed. Ball joints are bad....if you had done maintenance on the front end steering or suspension system, you need a front end alignment. But, you definitely have issues with the suspension system.

Tierod, ball joints, struts....could be a lot of things.

Let us know what has been done to the front end.
