First, you do NOT have to remove the rack to replace the inner tie rod ends. Second, If you want a .pdf regarding the procedure, I'll be glad to send it to you. But, the tie rods just screw off. Whatyou WILL need to do is get a good front-end alignement after you replace the inner tie rod. If not, you will destroy your tires. Alignment is critical to minimize tire wear on Celicas.

the reason why your hearing this noise is because your CV joints on your car is bad. CV joints go bad when the CV boots have a rip or a tear in them and little pebbles and debree from the road get into the bearings of your axle. Dont worry its not like this big expensive ordeal. What I do suggest is dont even ask about replacing the CV joints because it usually costs the same or even more than just replacing the axles. I know it sounds horrible expencive but its not. When you take your car in tell them you want to replace your front right and left CV axles, because there are two of them in the front. Most people think you only have 1 axle in the front but you technically have two. I find the cheapest way to do it is ordering the axles online. Then finding a job with the cheapest labor rate to put them on.
Go to www.autopartswarehouse.com. Select the year, make and model of the car. Then scroll down to the Driveshaft and Axle section and click on Axle Assembly and order the parts from there. I made it a little easier on you, I already looked it up for you and the price
right axle is $99.95
left axle is $99.95
Now you say you get the crunching when you turn left and right so you will need both the left and right axles. Remember that the longer you take to replace them, that crunching noise will continue to get louder and louder

they do have replaceable inner and outer tie rod ends, although I do recommend replacing the entire rack and pinion!! Hopefully this helps!!

SOURCE: I am replacing the inner
You will need sockets of the proper size, side cutter pliers, 16 oz or bigger ball peen hammer and a pickle fork (thing to remove the ball joint) probably regular pliers and a screw driver. You will possibly need new cotter pins and a grease gun. Other tools may be required but I would not lay down on the mechanic crawler until I had at least these items.
How do you intend to realign the front end? If you are going to do this, you will need a $25,000 wheel alignment machine. I recommend you get the alignment done at a shop equipped for this service.
Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com
