    Hi all , first question… where did the forum search go? Am I blind? regular search on the home page does not seem to be searching the forums.

    2009 Ford Flex FWD

    Anyway, I just two weeks ago got new tires and alignment. Even though I told the shop I suspected front left axle was going bad (clicking sometimes on turns) they said it was ok and did not replace… clicking got worse, so I just changed the axle myself. To change I removed unbolted/removed the lower ball joint from the knuckle and also loosened the four mounting nuts at the top of the strut tower under the hood. Did not touch the tie rod end. I know the ball joint should not effect alignment but not sure about the 4 mounting bolts for strut under the hood.

    The strut mount shouldn’t impact the alignment in most cases.
