I fixed the links. Apparently Facebook links don’t work.

It looks like you found the problem while it was on the lift.
You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried, pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp in potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich....

Yeah tie rods needed for sure! Just changed mine too. Has the tires been setting for awhile?

yeah thanks maybe it is the inner tie rod ends
The tires had been sitting which might make it worse but I had this problem before I parked it. It’s weird like it’s worse under load like going uphill. I checked the guibo and it’s ok too.

Hmmmm, this actually makes me wonder if mine has the same issue.
Mine is nowhere near this bad, only does it when I brake.
Front brakes are new, tie rod ends are new, but still does.
I was thinking control arm bushings, but maybe inner tie rod ends?
