Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
I have a '03 Ford E350 & just had it in for an oil change, the mechanic there took channel locks and applied pressure to all tie rod joints & showed me that they went in and out & said I needed all tie-rods. I took the vehicle back where I bought it & they said that they are tight & do not need to be replaced because they are tight from side to side & the up & down is because of springs in the joint and you only check tie rods by hand and moving the tire from side to side which all is tight. Is there such a thing about spring loaded tie rods and if so then they must be trying to sell parts
Quck way to test a tie rod is to jack up the vehicle.... grab ahold of the wheel and try to move it side to side.... any play there ... it's likely a tie rod... up and down play is a ball joint
