Well you could have several reasons for this problem. you could have a bad belt in a tire. it could also have a loose ball joints, or drag link this apllies to the steering linkage. it could be a warped rotor. or it could be that the hub is a little loose. I would suggest jacking the front od the car and use jack stands to support it. take the wheels off and start to inspect all those items i just mentioned. if the wobble feels like it's in the rear of the vehicle do the same there as well. i would do this as soon as possible . a severe wobble could lead to a bad situation if not taken care of. please rate this...thanks

I would count the number of threads exposed at the point of adjustment and duplicate those on the new.
This will get you close enough to be safe but replacing any part that can affect tracking needs to be also brought in for alignment, otherwise you may have a tendency to pull left or right and experience uneven and abnormal tire wear.
What you describe is most often caused by a bad tie-rod end, which is part of your steering. This causes the clunking that you feel when you turn, and the tire wear. Jack up the front drivers side and when the wheel is off the ground, try to force it left and right. If you feel any play in it, a tie rod end is bad. To find out if it is the inner or outer tie rod end, look underneath and locate the tie rod for that wheel- it will look like a pole about an inch thick. Get somebody to move the wheel left and right like you did, and look on either end of the tie rod for which end is moving. That will be your bad tie rod end. The "outer" is the one by the wheel- the other one is the "inner". Most often it is the outer tie rod end that goes bad. It is important to get a bad tie rod end replaced as soon as possible because it can separate and cause you to lose control of your car when the wheel will suddenly turn either in or out, depending on which way you are steering when it fails. After a tie rod end is replaced, your car will need an alignment to set the adjustment correctly. If you are changing it yourself, mark how far the old one is threaded in so your alignment will be fairly close to where it was. Good luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

The tie rods are part of the steering system not connected to the battery. If you have an estimate from a shop it should show a battery on a different line than a tie rod or tie rod end. Tires vary greatly in price depending on size, use and brand. Many tire dealer websites hae do-it-yourself tire pricing allowing you to choose different options.
