Icon4 What is this part? Clunk

I have narrowed it down it seems to one part now where the mysterious clunk has been coming from. It appears to be this part (where my finger is pointing.



The vibration I can feel when I turn the steering is greater where I am pointing than inside the boot or lower down the rod to the joint. Any idea if there is a replaceable part here or what is the worn part?

Does that connect to your steering knuckle? It's kinda hard to tell. Looks like your tie rod. Go to autozone and pick up an inner and outer tie rod. Should be about $20 eac.

Don't listen to hurley, that is definitely your trucks continuum transfunctioner. Any well equipped auto-parts store should carry it. Good luck in replacing it!!!!

Coil spring rangers don't need tie rod tools for inner ties. All you need is a pipe wrench lol.

Also you need new inner bellow boots clips if you do the inner ties. They are not reusable.

The outers are easy.
