my g/f has about 43 K on her patriot and I have noticed when pulling it in and out of the drive way there's a clunk.....she has finally noticed it as well.
no leak from the rack and pinion.... i had her shake the steering wheel, no noticeable play in either tie rod, but you can hear the knock/clunk sound when you shake the wheel.
also, if you put your hand on the tie rod, you can feel the knock/clunk
is that the whole rack ?? or just differed feeling from the tie rods ?
has anyone had to replace tie rods and or the rack yet ???
if so, how many miles ??
thanks in advance
