Had the outer tie rod ends replaced. New ends have grease fittings, none on the old ones. Got front end aligned. Total cost: $294.00
I have a squeaking noise from front when turning wheel side to side. I have been told that it is not the tie rods. The problem is the entire steering rack is moving on the frame and the large bolts need to be tightened. It seems to be a common problem that other owners have experienced from my Mustang club site.
bought a used 02 and had to replace ball joints and inner tie rods

Tie rod snapped for no reason. Snapping was preceded by squealing sound - we thought it was the brakes.
