43000 mi US $100 Both outer tie rod ends were worn out. 
50000   Inner tie rod ends loose. Required replacing power steering rack and pinion since inner tie rod ends are not available as a service part.

71000 US $100 After I noticed a clunking sound, the dealer replaced BOTH left and right tie rods. This is the second time the right has been replaced. I paid the $100 deductible for the Chrysler Service Contract.

48000 US $1100 Front end clunking over bumps was the problem. Dealer installed Steering Rack because of leak in existing. This DID NOT fix the problem. Looking for mechanical help elsewhere. MK: rack was leaking, so count that aspect as successful.
