Question front suspension questions

hey guys, need some help. i know how to check ball joints to see if bad, but how do you know if tie rod ends are bad? getting some feathering on outside of tread. keep psi at 35. new struts were put on earlier this year as with an alignment obviously. when i back up and turn the wheels it doesn't turn smooth, kinda like it's catching or something. only noise it makes down the road is the tire where it's feathering. i have sumitomo tires on it. junk tires? appreciate any help...

That sucks. At least it is something you can fix yourself.

Re: front suspension questions

you can take the A Arms out yourself and save on labor, its pretty simple to do just need a jack stand and some tools~

Can ask them how much vs them doing all the work to see.
