1997 Dodge Intrepid Question: Problems with Tie Rods

 

Question

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

    There are 2 tie rods on your car, where both replaced the last time? They do have a rubber groment on the inside end that deteriate and cause slack and shake.
    If oil or fluid is getting on them the rubber won't last long.
