Exclamation Tie Rods???

Ok, I know this isn't a 4x4 question, but I can't find anywhere else to look/ask/whatever...
A couple months ago I replaced the outer tie rods on my ZX2 (yes, a deathscort), and I was told that one of the outers was bad. So here's my question...
When I go around a corner, more when I have my foot on the brake, I feel kind of a 'clunk'. Not really bad, but sometimes multiple times around a regular turn. I think I've felt it when just going over bumps, which is what leads me to believe it's the tie rods, but I'm worried that it might be a cv shaft going or gone bad.

Any help is MUCH appreciated!!

Not that big of a deal....$30-$60 for complete axle assembly on ePay and a 30 minute R&R. $120 or less P&L at a reasonable independent shop. Good luck.

Drive gently and get it taken care of soon. Not as dangerous as tie rod/control arm coming loose, but gets expensive when it pops and the axle is free to take out more components.

Thanks for the info! Hopefully I can get it taken care of when I get back from CO. along with an oil change and brakes...
