Question about 1994 Dodge Intrepid
Cv boot is tore grease comin out. Just replaced a tie rod in it. It was wobbleing at slow speeds smoother faster. I took it to the shop they said looks to be a cv joint. gave a rough est. of 200 or better. I know the parts 60.00. I want to see if I should tackle it or give up the cash
As for your cv boot you will find you are cost ahead to replace cv axle . if you replace only the boot you have no warranty if you replace whole axle you have warranty not a hard job if you know how

put the tie rod back in and thread the nut on. then you turn the inner tierod with a pipe wrench or a big pair of channel locks. you can spray the threads with pb blaster or wd-40. also if ya have a propane torch this helps loosen the threads. apply heat to the outer tierod do not heat the inner. good luck jimmy

make sure if you do it youself you count how many turns it takes for your tierods to come off. it it makes it easy for me that way. also make sure you get a front end aligiment when your done

Replacing steering components is not that easy, and you have to take it somewhere for an alignment afterwards anyway, and if the shop did not do the work they are going to charge you a lot for the alignment. I'd take it somewhere and let them fix it for you.
I wouldn't take a long trip with bad steering components. If something broke, the best outcome is you'd be stranded, but the worst could be you lose control and crash. Paying somebody to fix it would seem really cheap compared to that!

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.
