The play seen in the video is when the tire is pushed/pulled with my sons hands at 9 and 3, I read somewhere that play in movement in that position indicates a bad ball joint but you can clearly see the play in the outer tie rod end, there is no play in the ball joints or the inner tie rods. The car is a 2006 Grand Prix with eighty something thousand miles. I'm new to working on rack and pinion steering so double checking if I'm right. The other outer is just as bad. No play when the tire is pulled straight out or in. There's some play when the tire is rotated left or right until resistance is felt, you can see the amount at the end of the video, vehicle was in park, i'm assuming that play is normal or no?
