SOURCE: How to replace Inner Tie rod on 1994 Chrysler Town & Country?

222,000 miles? that's a good vechile so far! anyways, do some price checking. new rack and pinions come with the inner tie rods. so if it's like 50 more for the whole assembly, i would but if not, it's up to you. i've changed some rack and pinions on vechiles that were under 150000 due to major leaking. and if you put just new rods in, if it dose start leaking later, you'll get new inner rods again with new system you'll just be paying labor and alingment charges again. so again, my OPINION is if I'm going to keep it for a while and if it's COST effective, just to do the whole unit.

Need to replace inner tie rod on a 1998 ford ranger two wheel drive , driver side . engine size is 2.5. do i have to take outer tie rod off as well?


webbraymond2, Yes, you have to remove the outer tie to access the inner tie rod. When you do this, count the rotations of the tie rod as this will have to be replaced when the new inner tie rod is installed. Counting the rotations will allow you to put the outer tie rod close to where it was when you started the job. You are changing the toe setting when you have to replace either the inner or outer tie rod. You need to access and remove the jamb nut and boot before you can access the inner tie rod and this is why the outer needs to be removed first. A wheel alignment is advised after you finish the job. Good luck with this.

One of the steering rods that goes from the rack to the right tie rod is bent. Can I replace the rod or must I replace the entire rack?


you can replace just the tie rod yourself although you do need a special tool but you should be able to get it at any parts store just take the outer tie rod loose from the steering knuckle remove the rubber boot from the inner tie rod and get the proper size tool to fit he nut and remove and replace the inner tie rod and install in reverse order make sure to count the amout of turns that removed the outer tie rod and reinstall the same amount of turns then afterward the car needs to be aligned

Am changing the inner tie rod on a 2000 cirrus with a 2.5 and cant figure out how to get old one off


to get the inner tie rod out you need an inner tie rod tool, it's a long tube that fits a 1/2 inch drive rachet and there's different size adaptors that go into the end of it to fit over the tie rod, find the right size put into tool, put over tie rod and brake it loose, reverse for installtion.

Tie rod broke and I am trying to remove the old one but can't figure it out. I have removed the nut from the outer tie rod but it still does not come off the tire. The inner tie rod I have no idea how to...


The tie rod close to the tire. Your have to get a pitch fork and a hammer.
If you don't have a pitch fork,
Then hit the spindle to make that outter tie rod end drop down.
make sure the bolt is remove.
Little hammer is not going to work you will need like a 32oz .
Once you have it loosing you will have to go counter-clock wise turn to remove the outer tie rod end from the inner tie rod, Remember count the turn very important to install it back. for you Toe Alignment.


The inner tie rod end will you will need a tool call tie rod end removal & install. It's a long tube with specail clip to removal & install.
Maybe you can rent it. Or buy it habor freight tools or something.

How do I install driver side inner tie rod on my 1997 chevy cavalier?No room to work. Do I need to remove whole rack and pinion assembly?


you don't need to remove the whole rack but do need a special tool called inner tie rod tool. can be bought or borrowed form most auto parts stores. first remove wheel. next loosen the jam nut on inner tie rod at the end of outer tie rod. remove cotter pin and nut on outer. use seperator or pickle fork to seperate outer from knuckle. then remove the clamps on boot and remove. then take tie rod tool and find the right size end and turn with 1/2" ratchet or breaker bar. it will turn hard at first cause of it being staked on to the threads. when it is off install new part with loc-tite on threads and tighten. when tight crimp inner flanges with either plier or hammer and punch to the rack. install in reverse order. remember to measure distance from clamp on outer side of boot to jam nut so you can get the alignment close until you get to shop for alignment.

Outer tie rod 1994 ford escort


You need  some sockets, and a good 1/2' ratchet. Sizes 13mm, 14mm ,15mm, 16mm,17mm and 19mm to undo the nut holding the swivel onto the hub carrier.  You will need a 17mm,18mm & 19mm open ended spanners to crack open the lock nut that secures the tie rod end onto the steering rack end. You may also need a pair of mole grips or small stilson type grips to undo the worn tie rod as it may be partially seized. A can of WD40. I have listed a few different sizes of spanners and sockets because in my experience if the tie rod has been replaced before certain parts manufacturers use different size nuts!
You should be able to remove this without jacking the car up but taking the weight of the wheel will help.
