    Default How much movement in tie rod

    I have a signum 3.2 v6 and changed the arb's today £5.35 from vauxhall bargain.
    While i was having a look about i wondered how much movement should there be in the tie rod as i can twist the osf one from side to side but no up or down movement

    Really need someone to grasp wheel an 3&9 o'clock position an wobble it to feel for movement as being able to move it side to side their usually still ok.

    Have a look a strut tops. An wish bone bushes if still knocking.
