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?
