Well, best way to confirm an issue is for you to be able to replicate the issue.

Within 500 miles, the grease in the Moog tie rod ends pushed it's way out because the knocking returned. With it, the play in the endlinks. I can now move the wheels by hand again. a result, the sidestepping is back.

SO just confirms my suspicions anyway that these endlinks are now junk. Were they junk to begin with? or just junk from me installing them dry? Who knows.

I've got a pair of new Ford endlinks, so looking for a day to install them and get the car realigned.
