Question about 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis
There is a part which connects to the tierods. It is called an Idler arm and it is mounted to the frame in front of the vehicle. Usually towards the front passengers side. When the wheels turn and the tierods move this part acts as the stabilizer for those links. The other part is called a Pitman arm and it is on the Steering box and moves the links on the drivers side of the car.
Usually if you have a helper, you can hold the parts as they move while your helper turns the steering wheel. You can feel the vibration causing the noise in the joints where these parts connect. If you have parts at the top of the suspension which look like "A" frames, they have a pin which goes through some bushings and that may be what you paid to replace.
What you might want to check is the connecting joint in the steering shaft. There may be a plastic shield over the moving parts but it can have a small u-joint or fiber connector making the noise. I hope my solution is helpful in solving your problem.
