1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: front end



billyboy88, 5.2L V8, New Bedford, MA, March 17, 2011, 20:00

I replaced bearing and shocks, balljoints. My tire on the drivers side front shakes as though it is going to fall off. tie rod end is not suppose to go up and down just twist side to side correct?

    That is correct the tie rod end should only pivot a little at the top but not the part the goes through the hole. up and down movement is not to happen.
