    Default what does this mean on my service sheet?

    Hi,

    Had the wife's car serviced and for the second time the words 'front o/s, n/s drumsticks have excessive play'.

    The " drumsticks " are the tie rods/track rods they are part of the steering rack mechanism. The tie rods/track rods are the bars that stick out of each end of the steering rack and allow for movement within the steering/suspension systems....
