Uro tie rod end dead in 3 days.

My 124 300d had a loose drag link and I decided to replace the tie rod assemblies, damper and freshen up the idler arm while I was in there. The ball joints and lower control arm bushings were replaced a couple of months ago.

I started hearing a little knock when I hit bumps yesterday so I made sure to give things a once-over while replacing the tires today thinking I may have left something loose. Sure enough, the LH front tire had a lot of play. The LH inner tie rod end was shot. Way shot. There's at least .25" lateral movement in the joint. You get what you pay for.
