    Ok my dad drove my truck to work today and is now pissed that im spending all this money on a rearend and none to fix the death wobble

    he gave me 90 bux and told me to fix it before he got home.

    my qestion is, how can i be sure the tie rod is bad before i put all of this money toward one??

    i have like the 80s style so its only 2 pieces and might be kinda pricey to get a new one.

    I just need to make sure its bad.

    i can grab it with my hand and turn it about 30 degrees back and forth pretty easy if that lets yall know any thing

    Thanks guys

    Have someone sit in the K5 and turn the wheel from side to side while you watch the tie rod and drag link for play/movement.
