Cool trying to steer clear of problems

oh sorry, i had to.


The front right tire has a little bit of play left and right, just barely wiggling. Is there supposted to be a bit of movement or should it be stiff and sensitive like the left side?
Thanx for your help agian boys!

It should not have any play in it. If play is up and down check wheel bearings for proper geasing and preload and ball joints for wear.

If left and right movement as you call it check inner and outer tie rod ends for wear. Usually play comes from inner tie rod ends socket wearing.
These can be replaced and are available from IAP under listing for suspension parts as 29061 for R/H and 29062 for L/H. Get new rubber boots too.

Is there any way I can get my hands dirty and fix things myself, or replacement the only way?

I say get your hands dirty and replace worn inner tie rod end and rubber boot that goes over it.
