Re: Tie Rod

Absolutely. Also, when I do tie rod ends, I usually do both sides at the same time. They should be cheap enough that this will be a good idea.

Is the tie rod bad or just squeaking? Does it have a grease fitting?

Re: Tie Rod

Then that's probably what it is. Like I said, If it were me I would go ahead and replae both sides.
A tip for tie rod ends, before you take your old ones off, mark the threads that they attach to with some white paint. That way when you install your new ones you can screw them on to where the old ones were. I have done this to several, and as far as I could tell, my alignment was still pretty much right on.

Re: Tie Rod

A good way to tell if they are junk or not is to jack the front up and move the wheel with your hands side to side. If there is a lot of movement, they are done for!

^+1. Also while your in there take a look at all your suspension componets to make sure they are all in working order. Odds are the tie rod ends will solve the problem and save your tires. Do you notice a vibration/play in the steering wheel?

and welcome to the site! I think you will enjoy your Mustang, for years to come. That's a great Mustang to start with.
