So I recently replaced worn tie rod ends (spherical or hiem style) on my 04 Xterra. The old ones were super worn, literally had the bearing rattling in the housing!
Now everything is nice and tight, but I noticed I'm getting a 'click' sound when changing direction. What I mean is, I would be driving straight, turn left, and hear a click. If I turn left again, nothing. But if I now start turning right I will hear a click again. It seems the click is only coming from the driver's side. It's almost as if the driver side tie rod end gets 'loaded' or turned into a certain range, and clicks going into it, and then clicks when going out of that range again.
How normal is this?
