hi. my question is how do i know if my tie rods needs replacement or what are the symptoms?
I have an 08 RL and notice that when im making turns (mainly right turns) i hear a creaking sound like when you open a door slowly and it creaks. I also notice that when going over bumps on the road i hear the same creaking sound. Is this a tie rod issue or something else. My mechanic checked the sway bar links and he says its fine.

Thanks

If it is loud creaking it could be where the steering shaft goes through the firewall. There is a rubber boot and sometimes it can get dried out.

But since you hear it over bumps as well....could be the sway bar bushings....really alot of things.

Symptoms are torn boots, really loose, mileage... depending on your mileage and pocketbook might want to start freshening up things up front.
