Do u think it could be my tierod ends cuz when I wove the tire from side 2 side the whole rim and tire moves a lil bit. And the car pulls 2 the right. And I checked the swaybarlinks the bushings looked really bad and I tuged on them with my hands and they didn't move much. Plus I checked all of this while the car was on the ground and the rim was still on. Its cold out there 2 jack it up and take the rim off lol

yeah its def the endlinks just gonna replace them both with the MOOG ones. is it easy 2 do XFE? is there a how-to on here?
There's not really one needed.

Take off the nuts holding the endlinks to the swaybar (bottom) and to the strut (top) - there's a 17mm cast nut on the back side of both, on the endlink, and the nut (18mm I believe) on the front. Replace with the Moogs, but now the nut and cast nut are 18mm. The Moog's cast nut is actually like a real one - the stock one sucks and will round off.

Good luck. :)

You can see it in this picture.

See the arm that comes off the side of the strut (left side of the strut, under the spring).

And here are those Moog's before I put them on.

The Moogs you have to grease.

Just regular chassis grease - going to need a grease gun.
