Default Outer tie rod

07 GT 34,000 miles. My right outer tie rod needs replacing. $110 (I have free alignments for a year with tire purchase from NTB) Should I replace both or or just the right which is loose?
Control arms bushings are worn, but no clunking, could I wait on this? They want $500 to replace control arms.

Sounds like you have a rare tie rod failure at low mileage. If it were me I would only change the one that's bad. I have 110k with the original tie rods.

Replaced just the right front tie rod- rides fine Now! I will get the control arms repaced in a few months they are worn, but no clunking or anything.
