  • Here is how to test your ball joints and tire rod end to see if they need replaced. Esay teat, very reliable.
  • First jack that wheel off the ground.
  • Put one hand on 3 and one hand on 9 (O'Clock) and try to wiggle the tire from side to side. If you get movement then your tire rod end (middle ball joint) need replaced.
  • Now put one hand at 12 and the other hand at 6 (O'Clock) and move the tire in an up and down motion. Any play with the wheel with this motion indicates your lower ball joint needs replaced.
  • No put one hand at 2 and the other hand at 8 (O'Clock) and try to move it back and forth. Do the same at 11 and 5 (O'Clock). Any movement in either of them positions indicates a HUB or Wheel Bearings needing replace.
  • Make sure after you tightened that lower ball joint bolt up that you stick a cotter pin in the hole that goes through that bolt so that nut stays put.
  • I would hate to think someone installed shocks and did not do an inspection at the same time to see if any other repairs were needing done.
  • When the HUB goes bad it will vibrate and get louder as they wear and worsen getting to the point of almost deafening.

I have a 1996 Mazda 626 and have been told I need to replace the tie rods or I will have to replace my tires about every 6 months. When I went on line to try and order the tie rods there were several...


Jack the front of the car up high enough to get under it, put jack stands under the car for safety.

Start on either side and check the tie rod ends for looseness. If you have someone to help, have them hold one tire with hands at 3 and 9 o'clock while you grab the other tire the same way. Try to move the tire by pushing and pulling. If you feel movement, have your helper sit in the car and move the steering wheel 1/4 to 1/2 turn left and righ as you check the tie rods for which one or ones are loose.

Once you have found out which to replace, after they are replaced, you will need to have the car aligned.

Replacing tires every six months is not the worst--Sooner or later a sloppy tie rod let's go. They don't always go out all at once, but sooner or later they all need replaced.

2003 gran prix- front pasenger tire has play. what can i do to fix it?


Jack up car with jack under the lower control arm, enough to get tire off the ground. With tire on, grab tire outside edges at 3 oclock & 9 oclock, push in & pull out respectively on each hand. Look for play in bearing between bearing & cv shaft. You can also see play in outer & inner tirods if any. Now move hands to 12 oclock & 6 oclock, push in & pull out & check for play in upper & lower balljoints. You should be able to verify whatever component is loose.

The truck is loose in the front end causing it to wander a little to much for my liking. What can be the cause. Steering wheel has some play in it as well.


A worn tie rod end
Check them for play with the wheels up in the air jacked up securely
If you can move the tire in a turning motion you can see the tie rod socket flex if worn

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel


this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

94 Cherokee Steering loose


it's likely the tie rod ends... jack up the vehicle... both front tires at the same time if you can. grab the tire in the 9 and 3 o'clock positions and try to wiggle the wheel side to side.... if it wiggles... tie rod. now grab the wheel in the 12 and 6 o'clock position... see if it moves up and down... that would be your ball joint. replace as necessary
