1997 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I replaced driver side hub/spindle/rotor/axle yesterday. After all this works, I asked for wheel alignment (I took my car to a different mechanic due to lifetime alignment). But the mechanic told me tie rod end got crooked and was unable to do alignment without replacement of inner tine rod end. THe mechanic told me the other memchanic (hub etc work) probably mistakenly manipulated tie rod and then subsequently it got crooked. Before hub/spindle/rotor/axle work, I had experienced that my steering wheel became very stiff for turns.
Does this mean I may eventually need to replace Rack N Pinion?
Thank you for reading long message and hopefully response in advance
