How to Replace the Upper Arm Assembly and Ball Joints on a 2003 Mercury .... The ball joints act as connectors between the vehicle's tires and its steering system ... A ball joint allows the front suspension to move up and down and steer back ..... your steering wheel to your wheels so you can turn the vehicle left and right. ...

Your question isn't real clear but I'll make a guess if you jacked up the car then moved the right front tire left and right. While doing that, if the tie rod end isn't moving it would be a clear sign that there's an issue with either the tie rod itself or one of the tie rod ends. Anytime you move one wheel the other wheel has to move if everything is as it should be. Are you certain that whatever isn't moving is actually a tie rod?

if you grab the tire and move it from side to side the tie rod has to move too if it,s hooked up. look at the other tire when your moving the right tire. it should move some too. try locking the steering wheel and try it.

While you have it up in the air , try grabbing the top and bottom of the tire then pull and push it to check for movement . Get a pickle fork if it moves and pull the ball joint
