Well, as I read I was thinking "CV joint". I'd check that first.
As to the tie-rods, yes they deteriorate quickly. Easy to diagnose
once on a lift - have ti checked out. The bucks are modest - under
$100 for the tie rod, if (and only if) the end alone can be replaced.
Pls labor, plus alignment, so figure $300 (yes, ouch).
Since you describe creeping, I assume its an automatic?
