A little help....

I've developed a small to medium noisy knock while driving. It's coming from the front drivers side tire... almost like a bad ball joint possibly.
Also, noticed steering is a bit loose....so thinking of replacing the ends on that. Any ideas on how to check this. I can grab the steering rod and easily move it back and forth...don't think I should be able to do that.
As for the noise... it reminds me of a previous ball joint issue on another Ford i owned....

Anyone have part numbers or anything for the ends and for ball joints?
01 F250, 7.3L turbo diesel, CC, 6 speed manual trans.

thanks
Mike

You are right. You should not be able to move the steering rod at all. Don't have any part numbers though.

In case anyone comes up with this...
I found the clunking noise to be my caliper loose on the drivers side. I removed the bolts, added some locktight and retorqued them... no more noise.
Now for the new ends....

Thumbs up Hi mgoodman

The place to get Ford parts is ( powerstrokeshop.com). Just look up there web site and give Bob a call. Great place to get parts with fast shipping. The orders I have placed were shipped fast and the parts were right the first time. Just have your VIN handy. Hope this helps.
