Need some help with what this part is called.

I looked at the diagrams I could find online but I am getting no where. This part has quite a bit of play and is causing freeway travel to shimmy a little plus my tires are not wearing well. I need to get it fixed ASAP. Can anyone tell me what the heck this thing is called? lol. Anyone also have a lead on where I can pick one up for inexpensive? Thanks!


PS. I know the one above it is a tie rod, is this also considered a tie rod?

OK this is what I have gathered. The thing on top is the drag link and the part that is bad is actually my tie rod. Sound right?

i would do as much as you can afford
EI both sides tie rod and drag link .. the tie rod requires an alignment after you work on it so Why not do both sides ,, and check ball joints also

Thank you for the confirmation. I have never seen a set up like this before. But this is the first f250 I have owned. Is there anywhere that's cheaper than another on these parts? 93k miles

OK 93K isn't bad

I like to find name brand and greaseable AKA Zerk fittings

usually NAPA's MooG's are good enough.. or back to Ford Motorcraft ,, they some times have serviceable replacements

remember, this a very key part in yours / my safety......PLEASE do not go cheap, i have seen these parts fail at speed......trust me, you do not want to be the driver or the other vehicle when you see the drivers eyes if this part fails at speed.

I just replaced that tie rod end last week. Mine also had tons of play in it.
I recommend replacing both sides including the adjusting sleeve. I got new replacements from auto zone that had grease fittings. The adjusting sleeve was like $16. Drivers side $37, passenger side $87.
Just measure how far each end is threaded into the adjusting sleeve and match up the new parts the same.

Pretty easy job to do and made a notable difference.
