Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
When driving the auto pulls to right/I had it looked at & they can't wreck the tie rod adjustment sleeve free to alighn the car
Are they incompetent?
the dont makes excuses, they do, or order parts.
find a real ASE mech. yours, is noob.
had it looked at , is the uncle fester or what?
my guess, is cant wrench turn the tie rod adjustments do to rust.
buy a new rod, or use a torch and heat cycle it, all mech now what to do , Pen oil, then heat then buy new one.

SOURCE: Left tie rod problem
Sounds like it may be your left CV Joint. if it is you might as well change both sides since they have the same amount of milage on them.
A total CV joint failure = Tow to the shop. Good luck and hope this helps

First, you do NOT have to remove the rack to replace the inner tie rod ends. Second, If you want a .pdf regarding the procedure, I'll be glad to send it to you. But, the tie rods just screw off. Whatyou WILL need to do is get a good front-end alignement after you replace the inner tie rod. If not, you will destroy your tires. Alignment is critical to minimize tire wear on Celicas.

the reason why your hearing this noise is because your CV joints on your car is bad. CV joints go bad when the CV boots have a rip or a tear in them and little pebbles and debree from the road get into the bearings of your axle. Dont worry its not like this big expensive ordeal. What I do suggest is dont even ask about replacing the CV joints because it usually costs the same or even more than just replacing the axles. I know it sounds horrible expencive but its not. When you take your car in tell them you want to replace your front right and left CV axles, because there are two of them in the front. Most people think you only have 1 axle in the front but you technically have two. I find the cheapest way to do it is ordering the axles online. Then finding a job with the cheapest labor rate to put them on.
Go to www.autopartswarehouse.com. Select the year, make and model of the car. Then scroll down to the Driveshaft and Axle section and click on Axle Assembly and order the parts from there. I made it a little easier on you, I already looked it up for you and the price
right axle is $99.95
left axle is $99.95
Now you say you get the crunching when you turn left and right so you will need both the left and right axles. Remember that the longer you take to replace them, that crunching noise will continue to get louder and louder

I'm assuming by 'housing cover' you're referring to the drum itself...sometimes it helps to remove the rubber plug from the backing plate and maually loosen the automatic adjuster to release the tension from the shoes. I know this next suggestion may seem like a silly reminder, but I mention it only because I've done it myself...be sure the parking brake isn't engaged.
