Use the Moog problem
solver greaseable parts.
The car must be raised and put on jackstands or on a lift to proceed
This is the outer tie rod end
This is the inner and the tool required to remove it
You have to remove this boot on the rack to gain access
Take a measurement before removing outers (for rough toe setting)
You're going to need this tool to release the tie rod ends
Then you can remove the outers with a pair of adjustable wrenches. Then remove the boot clamps, you may have to replace the inner with a narrow hose clamp. But If you're careful the inner one can be reused. remove the boot ,then place the tie rod tool (from HFT)with the crow foot on the inner and break loose with a 1/2" drive breaker bar or long handle ratchet
Installation is the reverse, Torque the inner to MFG spec or spec provided by moog, reinstall the boot/clamps, install the new jam nut/tie rod end and adjust to measurements taken before removal. Place the tapered studs in the spindle, tighten,torque to spec, install cotter key. Put the wheels on lower the car and go get an alignment.
If you need pics on how to change the tension strut or the lower ball joint I can post those up too, the tension strut is pretty easy, but the lower ball joints are a PITA unless you have the correct Miller tools (and a torch) to remove them., D
