inner tie rod replacement instructions

Hey folks, Ive been searching around, and have determined I need to replace my inner tie rods. Outers were done recently but I'm not paying any one to do this. I just need some instructions and a bottle of beer.

anyone know where i can find an exploded view or instructions for this job? Also any special tools needed?

thanks

okay not the answer you want to hear. after searching on Mitchell on demand. looks like the entire rack and pinion will need replacing if the inner tie rod is bad.

This isnt the case. The inner tie rods are very replaceable without replacing the rack.

I don't have anything in front of me for wrench sizes needed at the moment so bear with me.

First lift up the car and use jack stands. Back the nut off where the inner and outer tie rod meet. I marked where the inner and outer met so that way I was relatively close when reinstalling. I measured the mark I put on the inner tierod and placed the mark on the replacement. You still should get an alignment afterwards. If your outer need replaced do it now with the inners. If not then leave the outers bolted to the knuckle. There is a flat spot on the inners to put a wrench too. Turn it to remove the inner rod from the outer rod. Then remove the boot. The small clamp just use pliers to crimp and slid off. The large one a small screw driver is needed. You can reuse the small one and also the large one if removed carefully. If not Napa or the dealer has a replacement. You will need to crimp it down during reinstall. Then put a wrench on the innser tie rod where it connects to the rack. It's pretty big. Remove it. Put locktite on the new tie rod and reinstall using the same procedure. I suggest getting torque specs on tighting the inner to the rack. I'm sorry I dont have them in front of me. Put grease on the iner tie rod end where the ball joint is for lubrication and to keep out moisture. Also put some on the boot ends to slide on easier. Put the retaining clips on the boot and put it on the rack and inner tie rod. Then using your measuerment on how far the outer tie rod was on the inner mark it and put the nut on it. Then put a wrench on the flat spot on the inner and thread it into the outer until you get to thea mark. Then make sure you tighten the nut to the outer tierod. Get an alignment. I wished it could me more detailed than this.
