Having problems with your 2000 Ford Escort ?

Both front wheels have some play in them (about 1/2 inch in both directions - left and right) when the wheel is jacked up off the ground. The steering is not tight. The looseness appears to be in the tie rod ends. Is this normal? BTW, its a 1998 escort

Answers :

No this is not normal and you need to determine if its the inner or outer tie rods. make sure you have no up and down movement though. that is signs of bad bearings. if you need to replace the tie rods, after youre done, make sure to get it aligned.
