    Possibly buying a 1995 escort. I have a 1992 escort 4 door that recently went bad when the strut mounts rusted thru. Are the parts on these two cars interchangeable?
    Also, the owner of the 95 said he thinks the inner tie rods are bad "play in the steering". Would that mean the rack/pin would need to be replaced as well? Is it easy to change out the inner tie rods on this model?

    Most of the parts are intercahangable from 1990 to 1996. The tie rod ends can be changed, but have a mechanic look it over to prevent issues.

    The OE outer tie rod ends on these cars go bad by 50K miles. If left too long they will tear up the inner tie rod ends as well. My strut mounts rusted through, but the body of the car was not damaged.
