2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid with 204k miles.
When I drive, there is a very light clunk when I turn the wheel past 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock, and sometimes when I break. I jacked up my front end and grabbed the wheel at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions, wiggled it, and there was play. It comes to a definite clunking stop when I wiggle it side to side and you can see the steering wheel move when I do it. The outside of my tires seem to be worn more than the inside of my tires, if that has anything to do with it.
It does this on both sides of the vehicle, so does that mean the inner tie rods on each side of the vehicle are bad, or something completely different? Should I replace the outers too? I can wiggle those around the ball joint by hand. Not sure if that's bad or not.
Also, can a DIY guy like myself do this job if I rent the tools? I've replaced strut assemblies and brakes before, just to give you an idea of my experience.
