Re: Suspension troubleshooting [Need help]
Do the springs look OK? I know my '99 taurus had a recall for potentially broken front coils.
I'd take the car in for a check. A good shop will tell you if the pitman rods, ball joints etc are shot. As you mentioned there is fluid on one of the joints I would bet it's a synthetic grease and that the ball joint is ruined even though you can't get any play out of it yourself, doesn't mean there isn't any.
