It was fun while it lasted
I had been experincing for the last month an oscillating vibration in the front that is felt through steering wheel at about 60+ mph. I thought it was tires so I had tires balanced and rotated. Shaking still there. It appeared to be coming from the right front side so I decided to investigate today and found that the ball joint in the tie rod end had a ruptured boot. But I cannot feel any play in it. I had my wife turn the steering wheel with the wheel off and I heard that familiar creaking that's been there since I've had the car. It appears to be coming from the lower bushing on the sway bar link. I plan to go ahead and replace the sway bar links and outer tie rods. All the other components appear to be tight and in good condition. Should I look anywhere else for this vibration or do any of you feel I should have it covered replacing these parts? The right front axle and hub bearing are new from 2 years ago.
