sure doesnt seem right, but stuff happens too. my 05, 80k is still ok, but i`ll need new control arms by next year. it might just be a ball joint thats actualy bad, but the book says to replace the control arm/ball joint assembly. even that shouldnt be bad on your car yet, but maybe someone pounded the car on that side on a rough part of road everyday or something.

Well the extended warranty was worth paying for so far.... Ford replaced the control arm and sway bar bushings turns out that the tie rods were ok according to them. It was a $696 repair bill which I only paid 77 out of my pocket. I'm statisfied with the out cone but still can't get over the fact that it needed to be replaced already.
I just did the brakes and saw that the passenger side tie rod boot was split, driver's side looked like it was about to split, and I had inner wear starting on the driver's side tire. Bought the car with 33k in 9/09, have about 55k on it now. I'm happy I bought the extended warranty but based on your comments, I'm wondering if its more than just Tie Rods will need to be replaced and if so, hopefully they'll cover it. Also, did they cover the alignment which is needed anytime you replace steering parts? Just curious.
