Tie Rod, Drag Ling or something problem

Post  mr.steamy on 4/10/2013, 7:27 pm

So I put in my steering stabalizer and noticed a problem. The tie rod (i think) has been rubbing up against the bottom of the sway bar (i think). I took a pic. My friend said the drag link is bent? I don't know......help please.

It's difficult to tell from that close. Could you take a picture further away? Also, do you hear scraping when you turn? Or is it more difficult to turn right than it is left?

Btw, to help with more confidently naming stuff, here is a super-awesome graphic that I use all the time.

That is awesome!! Thanks!

I don't hear any scrapping and I haven't noticed any difficulty turning, but when my friend and I were putting on the stabalizer he had mr turn the wheel to the right and sawthat it would hit.
