I have a 91 Chevy K5 Blazer 4x4. I think my tie rod ends are bad, but I want another opinion. If I grab onto the tie rod, I can pivot it up and down. I thought that might be a sign of bad ends, but wasn't sure.
Also, is the drag link supposed to be solid from front to rear? What I mean is, the coupler between the front and rear of the drag link allows rotation on the front drag link. I tried to tighten it down, but that didn't seem to help. I'm thinking the section of the drag link that connects to the pitman arm may need replacing.
Lastly, if I reach up and twist the steering shaft where it enters the steering box, how much play is ok? And what can be done to tighten it up if there is too much play? Thanks!
