Replace steering rack on 2004 grand prix


Jim, this is not a hard job but you must do it right. I suggest you purchase the Chilton Manual for your car. Before you take it apart mark the location of the outer tie rod ends so you can have the toe-in at least close when you reassemble. You might want to replace the outer tie rod ends at the same time. If i am buying a rebuilt unit i always try to get a "A-1 Cardone complete unit" with the inner tire rod ends already factory installed.

Tie rod problem 98 Dodge


There is a tool that you can use that will make it easier for you. To get to the tie rod end, remove the wheel and take the outer tie rod end loose from the hub. You will have to use a hammer and hit the socket where the end goes into the hub to free it up. Once you have the tie rod loose from the hub, loosen the nut behind the outer tie rod end. Count the revolutions as you unscrew the outer end off and write te number down so you will know how far to put it back on. This will save your alignment. Now, the end that is still there is your inner tie rod end. You will have to undo the bellows boot to get to the nut. The tool will slide over the end and secure onto the nut. Now you just unscrew this and replace with you new inner tie rod end.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Getting the outer tie rod off of a 2001 Grand Prix


If you are talking about the ball joint on the tie rod then you must use a spreader to seperate the two.
These are sold at your local auto parts store. When unthreading the rods make sure to count the number of turns out and turn the new one back in the same number of turns. Then take the vehicle to be aligned. The money saved doing the job yourself will be wasted on excessive tire wear unless you do.
Also keep in mind one side of the tie rod is left hand thread and the other right hand thread.

Good Luck
