My "04 Town Car has lateral play when tire is off the ground on the passenger's side. The driver's side is tight as a drum. I found this after feeling a shimmey in the steering wheel at 65 mph. Looking underneath I could see that the tie rod was moving with the tire so I thought the inner tie rod end must be bad. I replaced the inner tie rod and the outer since I had it apart. The darn thing still has play in it and the tie rod is still moving with the tire. I have never seen the inside of a steering rack. Is there anything inside that can cause one side to have play in it while the other side is tight? Or is it a solid piece going through the inside?
Any insight would be great!!!
Thanks in advance.
