Took off the old tie rod ends. Didn't seem like there was any play in the steering but the boots were ripped.
Replaced them with new and discovered that after only 60,000 miles, there were shot. Loose as can be.
Car is out of commission right now waiting for a new heater control valve to come from Japan.
The estate seller told me it needed a new radiator since the water level would drop. Turns out it was leaking into the carpet in the car. Once the car warmed up I smelled coolant and the windows started to fog.
Drained the system and took out the heater box. Hoses were really crusty as well so replaced those too.
