Yea I figured it out , got repair manual , fixing to tackle front end issue. Can move tire 1/2 to 3/4 in front to back . Wouldn't that be upper and lower control arm and ball joint or CV joint also it isn't clicking but wearing inside of each front tire

So you're saying you can place your hands at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and and wiggle left to right and have play? That's usually inner or outer tie rods. At the 6 & 12 o'clock positions any movement there would either be wheel bearing, lower ball joint, lower control arm bushings or strut bearings. You don't have a upper control arm, the strut assembly takes the place of that.

As above , wear on the steering / suspension will be throwing out the steering geometry and once the wear has been rectified you will need to check /set wheel alignment for the tire wear .

Take it easy and get well. I've been vaccinated but sick with burning in my lungs, congestion and that other good stuff that goes along with it. Hope mine is just a cold. And the brutal heat, we've got that too. Heat indexes today supposed to be in the 110 range in wast Arkansas.

You take your own advice with those crazy temps " Take it easy and get well. "

Thank you RS Logan. This is under the porch in the shade. Notice the inside temp? I have it set on 73 but this room is colder. Wife called me and said it 99 in town. We're always a little cooler here at home.

Yep! We've had very warm winters the past several years. I can remember as a kid it was cold and we had snow, it seems, every year.

You've been busy! I'm doing good. Been trying to avoid this new strain of Covid. Arkansas is seeing over 10k cases a day. Take it easy and stay safe!
