oh yes, this is a problem with most all chrysler cars, front wheel drive, they will not admit to it or fix the problem though. just give us 2 or $300 and we'll repair it. bs. you need a bushing replacement kit, autozone under 10 bucks. and a little patients. drop me an email and i will upload photos of steps and try to talk you through it. not that hard no special tools only took 45min. no charge of course. you have to stick it to the system some times.

1. Check the connecting rod alignment If either the bend or the twist exceeds the specified limit,the connecting rod must be replaced. Bend per 100 mm (3.937 inch) Limit: 0.15 (0.0059) Twist per 100 mm (3.937 inch) Limit: 0.20 (0.0078)
2. Measure the connecting rod thrust clearance. Use a feeler gauge to measure the thrust clearance at the large end of the connecting rod If the clearance exceeds the specified limit, the connecting rod must be replaced. Standard: 0.16 mm - 0.35 mm (0.0063 inch - 0.0138 inch) Limit: 0.40 mm (0.0157 inch)
3. Measure the oil clearance between the connecting rod and the crankshaft.

I just did the inner tie rod bushings on my 1999 300M, piece of cake! Get a Chiltons, it tells you to remove the windshield wipers, the plastic cowl covers, and the strut tower brace (looks like part of the body at first but 4 bolts on either side and one in the middle and toss it to the side). Remove the air intake ducting, and your there like underwear.use a long screwdriver and a big hammer and tap the bottom tangs down, pry up the top ones (once you get it started enough to get a screwdriver under it its easy) then use a 7/8 socket, 3/4 drive breaker bar and unbolt. One bushing was still intact so I drove it out with a large socket and a small C-clamp. Getting the bolts back in the rack with the new bushings was the dirty little bastard of the whole thing ( I didn't center the steering rack like your supposed to do, because I thought I knew a better way, I wanted the rack as far to the passenger side as possible for more room to work). You have to fight with the steering rack boot to line everything back up. Even with wheels of the ground it made me use ALOT of foul language. Torque the bolts to 60 ft lbs and your golden. The whole thing took about an hour and a half (about 15 minutes of that was cussin'). I hope this helps someone.

2ZZ-GE Engine 18 Nm (13 ft.lb)
1. Apply a light coat of engine oil on the threads and under the heads of the connecting rod cap bolts.
2. Install and alternately tighten the 2 connecting rod cap bolts in several passes. Torque: 1ZZ-FE: 20 Nm (204 kgf-cm, 15 ft. lbs.) 2ZZ-GE: 30 Nm (306 kgf-cm, 22 ft. lbs.) If any of the connecting rod cap bolts does not meet the torque specification, replace the connecting rod cap bolts.
3. Retighten the cap bolts by 90° more
4. Check that the crankshaft turns smoothly.
