Unhappy Tie Rod problems ... Help!

Hey Gang,

I just had the Tie Rod ends (ball joints) and the drag link replaced on my 94 d-90. I went to Precision Tune and they seem to know what they were doing, however, it's all screwed up. It strays back and forth and makes hard mechanical popping noises. I had it aligned but that made it worse. It's now undriveable.

Does anyone have any idea what the prob could be? I looked at them and they appear to be installed correctly, except the drag link looks a little too tight. Is there something special or tricky about installing Defender ball joints that I'm missing? Anyone else have this problem? I'd hate to have to cough up the money and take it to the dealer, but that's my next step.

Thanks
Mark

Mark,

Sounds like something is in upside down/backwards with the extent of the problems you are talking about. I'd be careful of driving it for risk of damaging other steering componenents. Get your hands on a diagram of the suspension and steering linkage and do a visual comparison of all the parts before you put in gear at all...

Thanks Wicks,

Any suggestions about there I could find a diagram?

No, I did not contact precision tune, yet. I really don't want them to screw with it again. I will fight for a refund though.
