In this video, Sue has tips to help you detect stiff or frozen ball joints and tie rods! For most vehicles, outer tie rods and ball joints both have flexible ball in socket joints. The joints are packed with grease and covered with rubber boots. Over time, or if a boot rips or tears, water and debris can get inside the joint, make it stick, and even cause rust. These joints will seize up, or dry up, causing lots of vibrations and noise.
