    Default Inner Tie Rods

    Guys,

    Getting a loud clunking from the steering when rocking the wheel backhand forth. Both the track rods ends have been changed and I can feel the clunk when I put my hands on the tie rods.

    I am thinking this might mean need the inner ties roads replaced but wondering if these are a common failure part? Car is 2.2sri on a 55 plate with 48k miles.

    Hoping it's not the steering rack itself but as I am not loosing any fluid anywhere (checked res and still full with no signs of any leaks) think it must be the inner rods??

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers
    Steve

    It was about 30 quid. The track rods are about 20 quid.
