2006 Ford F-150 Question: vibration in steering wheel
Based on the mileage - if this would be my truck - I'd do the upper ball joints on the side where the lower failed. The tie rod isn't necessary, it can be done when it will fails, but you will need to get it aligned again. I'd get a good quality part which comes with a grease fitting or buy a fitting separately and install it. This way you can get them lubed during an oil change and they will last way longer.

By the way, ball joints will not cause a vibration in your steering wheel. Strongly recommend a second opinion. Sure, they could be worn, and may need replaced. But they will not cause a rhythmic vibration. That would be more wheel balancing (higher speeds - above 40 or 50 mph), bent wheel or bad tire (low speeds - under 35), or brake rotors (vibrates when braking only). I get very sketchy about these mass recommendations to replace --everything. I'm kind of stingy about replacing only what is bad, unless you have to be in the area anyway. I agree with Zee - doing the uppers at the same time is not a bad idea, if you're doing lowers. - DaveJHM
there is a little vibration in the steering wheel when appaling the brake.
