JETTA TDI - SUSPENSION PROBLEMS

1999 Volkswagen Other

Hi

I purchased 4 brand new tires last year and had them rotated once so far. I was about to have them rotated again but noticed my 2 front tires are completely BALD. There is no tread left whatsoever (not even 1mm), while the back tires still look brand new. Driven about 14,000 miles on them.

Could this be realated to bad tie rods or the fact that my suspension squeaks like mad? When I turn in reverse, I hear a series of " thump, whump" noises in succession. If I replace the 2 front tires, I'm sure the same thing will happen in about a year.

Prices on tie rod replacements or suspension service?
