I had the tie rods replaced on my car in April, 2008, because I had a knocking in the front end of my car and the steering wheel was shaking. I am again having the same problems, so obviously the tie rods need to be replaced again. Is this a recurring problem with the 1997 Dodge Intrepid or was it not fixed correctly the first time? Any help anyone can give me would be appreciated. Thanks
