Question about 2000 Chrysler LHS

1 Answer

Didn't find what you need? Ask an Expert I have a noise almost every time I turn to the right. I'm told the tie rod bushings need to be replaced, the one on the right is almost seized.A leak in a valve gasket...throw in mention of the struts...and everything made of rubber crumbling...It has 91000 miles on it... I'm starting to wonder, if they get in there and find more and more serious things wrong with it, I should maybe try to put my hard-earned money in something more current...It's been a good car, and I really feel safe in it, but...

The items you mentioned are normal wear out items and at some point on all vehicle will need to be replaced. If you decide to go with a brand new vehicle than you shouldn't have to worry about anything for a long time. If you go with a used vehicle you could be buying the problems that the previous owner didn't want to deal with. If you keep your car and fix it at least you know what you have as far as what works, what doesn't work, what needs work.

What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

I need to rplace the inner tie rods.


Inner tie rods rarely if ever need to be replaced in my experience: outer tie rod ends are far more common. Its not impossible so here's how.

1. remove the tie rod ends from the knuckle.
2. remove the clamp for the rubber bellows on the rack ends, and slide the bellows down the rod.
3. Turn the rack to fullleft or right as needed to get access to the inner rod end that screws into the rack.
4. There's a lock tab that has to be bent flat. This locks the rod end into the rack.
5. You'll need a (probably) 32mm wrench to undo the rod end from the rack.
6. Note how the lock tab is fitted to the rack/rod end.

7. Put in the new tie rods.

If your garage mechanic told you the inner tie rods are worn out, I'd ask why they think so. At step 4. above, try rotating the rod. This should be quite difficult. There should be NO evidence of slop or wear in the inner joint. What more commonly wears is the bushes on the end of the rack. These bushes are easily replacable with the rack in the car.The tie rods have to be removed to do this. So, when the rods are off, inspect the rack bushes for wear.

How hard is it to replace the right side tie rod end?


Hello arriedad: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. It would depend on which tie rod end you are replacing.There are two right tie rod ends. You have a inner and a outer tie rod. The outer tie rod is easy. The inner takes a special tool to replace it. You will need an alignment when you are done as you will not be able to see when you have it correct. You can try to count the threads but the new end might be cut different. I would suggest that if you are not sure have a front end person perform the repairs. This way the alignment can be set at the same time. If not set you have premature tire failure. Some repairs are just best left to an expert if not for you then the safety of your family. If you still need further help please just ask and I will answer your questions. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

How do you replace the tie rod end bushing on a


If your having a hard time taking the nut off the tie rod without the stud spinning use a jack or pry bar and put some pressure on the bottom of the tie rod. An impact gun will usually zip it right off too. Be sure to get an alignment once you replace the tie rod.

Tie rod


No. Go to Napa, get the bushing repair kit. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. Remove the air inlet tube. Should be 2 7/8" bolts retaining the inner tie rod ends. Loosen both. Remove one at a time, replace bushing with kit. Use some synthetic brake grease on the bushings. I recommend Napa sylglide. Replace the bolt, but do not tighten all the way. Do the other the same way. Tightnen both bolts, reinstall the air inlet tube, get vehicle aligned.

2005 trailblazer front end noises


Tie rod ends can make noise as can stabilizer bushings. They can both be bad at the same time. If tir rod ends are non-greasable it's likely that they could need service.(check with wheel off the ground...shake back and forth and note play in end.) If they have grease fittings, grease them..if noise disappears they were dry.
Bushings are pretty obvious when bad, the rubber parts peel out and fall away, or the hole in the rubber gets very large. You can see this with little or no training.

Tie rods


I did this on a 2002 Intrepid, and found that it wasn't too complicated. I replaced the bushings only, rather than the tie rod end. You can get bushing replacement kits where the bushing is in two pieces and doesn't have to be pressed in. Before starting, turn the steering all the way to the right, then remove the intake air ducting. The rack and pinion assembly should be easily accessible now. BE SURE AND REPLACE ONLY ONE TIE ROD BUSHING AT A TIME. If you take both bolts out at the same time, you may have a very hard time getting all the sleeves, etc. aligned in the steering unit so you can get the bolt back in the proper hole.
