I have a very slight wobble in both of my front tires, but moreso on the passenger side. Anyhow, when i had the car jacked up yesterday, I was able to wobble the tire very very slightly side-to-side. There is absolutely no up/down wobble. I know this means the tie-rod ends are wearing out, although one was replaced literally 2 months ago.
Anyhow, being a VERY slight wobble (we’re talking total wobble of about 1/16" or even only 1/32" or so), is this really bad or can it be left alone for now? I’d rather not replace both tie rod ends as they run up the monthly maintenance bill ($35/each + labour from a friend).
Also, on a somewhat related note, do I need an alignment after replacing the Lower Ball Joint on my drivers’ side?
