Greetings;

After reading through the appropriate entries here, I proceeded to replace the right inner tie rod end bushing on my recently purchased 95 Trep, 3.5L. Steering was a bit sloppy, car seemed to wander some. Shop could not align. Took about 1.5 hours. Was able to use 3/8 rachet - didn't need racheting wrench. Did not disconnect any coolant/heater hoses - less bother this way, including not having to burp it. Used zip ties to keep hoses out of the way, then cut ties after bushing replacement.

This would fall into the "just for the curious" category. Here's a small video of the effect of the worn bushing. Worn inner tie rod end bushing You can see the 'slop' in the tie rod end movement when the steering wheel is turned. Camera was held still so all of the movement is the steering box and the tie rod end. The left bushing had previously been replaced. Here's the bad bushing and the new one - Moog. Old and new bushing

PS. Is there a way to attach the video and jpg instead of linking to them?
