Independent suspension geometry therefore requires an inner and outer tie rod end mounted at approximately the same pivot points as the front lower control arm. The right- and left-side tie rods are connected to each other by a center link, which is also mounted to the Pitman arm on the steering gear and the idler arm on the passenger side of the vehicle. In the straight-ahead position, the Pitman arm, center link and idler arm form a rectangle. When the vehicle is turned, they form a parallelogram, which gives this particular design its name.

A worn tie rod end will typically give you play in the steering, possibly a knock coming from the affected side and even a shudder or shake through the steering wheel. Before we do anything we need to figure out exactly where the worn parts are and to do this we need to jack the car up so that the front wheels are clear of the ground (and put chassis stands underneath the car of course!).
