suspension?

hey guys

how do you check to see if the ball joints an tie rods are good or need replacing? every time i hit a bump I'm all over the place i checked the tire pressures and they all are good. could it be the shocks ?

when i hit a bump it feels like the front end is loose. it doesn't thump or anything and it's not bouncy. just pulls to a side when i hit the bump. and i just wanted to know how to check the ball joints and tie rods.

if yoru running a lower profile tire it will grap the holes and bumps more. It could also be lack of air in your tires as well. Thats where I would start. easy and cheap... if it still remains then check the other crap starting with struts
