Huh, who knew two little things like tie rod ends and getting a four wheel alignment would make the ride in my tired old Focus that much better? But it did! No more slack in the steering, wheel whobble when under braking, and a good deal of the clunking when going over the many 1,000's of pot holes in Toledo has been silenced. My car does need new struts & shocks, as well as other bits & pieces, but at least it steers straight & I don’t have to worry that the wheels will actually fall off the car.
Next up, a water pump for the wife’s T & C!
