Welcome

One tip I can offer without knowing a thing about the car is you need to check out the front suspension, there are a few areas that wear and need attention. Every component should be checked but first off I'd check inner tie rod bushings and cradle bushings.

No its not normal to wiggle a tie rod It needs to be replaced ASAP and I would not drive it until you do this could be your pull and is extremely dangerous to drive> you will also were out your tires fast it will need to be realigned after! I would take it to a shop and have it inspected first!
