    Sometimes you can tell more by jacking it off the ground to get the pressure off everything and just try to move the wheels back and forth, and even up and down to check for king pin slack. You can definitely see that bellcrank shaft moving around and looks like a tie rod end is loose. I think the wobble is more likely to be the bell crank than the tie rod end though. Usually a tie rod will not do that going down the road unless you hit a bump, then maybe.

    I would go with both. The bell crank repair kit will take out any slop for where the bell crank mounts to the frame cross member. This is an often overlooked piece of the steering puzzle because it is often overlooked. The pin will usually have deep grooves worn into it from a lack of grease. The bell crank itself would be a good replacement just because if you have any slop on the drag link end (the ball) is from lack of grease as well. The tie rod, if you have slop there would be the next step.

    That would be the safe plan. If not you will be just chasing your tail fixing one item at a time. Take measurements of the tie rods in a neutral position, (tie rod ends close to centered in both ends) before you bust them apart so you know where your alignment should be. Transfer the measurements to the new assemblies then you should be darn near perfect afterwards. You might still want to take toe measurements on the tires before and after to verify that the alignment is still true.
