Well, the outer tie rod screws directly onto the inner tie rod. The inner tie rod is connected directly onto the rack and pinion. I will need a bit more info to figure out what problem you are having.

You will need a tool for disconnecting the outer tie rod end (you can do it without the tool, but it does make it harder).
Other then that, it's pretty much straight nut & bolt work (undo, reattach). It's not really a weirdness job, it is pretty straight forward.
Before you take it apart, measure length, and have your wheels straight while up on the stands. When you reassemble, try to have the measurements close to what they were when you started. I would also suggest changing both sides at the same time (wear will factor in).
Once you are done with the job, you will need to take it in for an alignment.
Front end wear and alignment go hand and hand. The more "slop" in the front end because of wear will affect how accurate you can get the front alignment.

Tire wear also factors in. If your tires have over 30K miles, you might want to consider changing them also. Reason being, it all effects front end alignment. It is not a make or break situation, but it does help balance the repair and alignment work.
Any job worth doing is worth doing right in the first place.

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.

oh yes, this is a problem with most all chrysler cars, front wheel drive, they will not admit to it or fix the problem though. just give us 2 or $300 and we'll repair it. bs. you need a bushing replacement kit, autozone under 10 bucks. and a little patients. drop me an email and i will upload photos of steps and try to talk you through it. not that hard no special tools only took 45min. no charge of course. you have to stick it to the system some times.

SOURCE: How to replace left inner tirerod (Special tools?)

To make it easier, when you stop at autoparts store, ask for a "crowsfoot wrench'" to fit the new inner tie rod. Should be able to get it in 3/8' or 1/2 " drive to fit ratchet. It's basically the end of an open end wrench, with square drive for ratchet to fit into.

Inside door handle 2002 concorde


You will most likely have to replace the inside handle, there is a "L" hook & clip inside the door panel. It's possible that it just popped out, but most likely the clip has broken. you'll have to remove the screws & crutons from the door panel to access the handle, you can find a replacement handle from the Chrysler dealer, or a used part yard. Happy handling B-)

Would i have to remove the over head cams to replace the tie rods on my 1999 chrysler 300m


Tony- No, you don't. If you are removing the tie rods off the steering ram, the best way to do this is to remove the shroud from behind the hood and just before the windshield. Remove the wiper arms. Lift the hood. Notice the phillips head or torx head screws that hold down the plastic vented piece that runs from fender to fender. Remove all of those screws and put them in a bag so you don't loose them. Take off the plastic valance and set it aside in a safe place where the kids won't walk on it and break it. Now, the good part: To the left and to the right of the steel support valance (for lack of a better term) there are 3-4 13 MM bolts holding down each side of the piece. Remove them and put them in the same bag. In the middle or just off center of this valance is yet another bolt, either 13 or 14 MM and it is a long one too. It supports the wiper motor. Remove it and put it in the bag too. Now carrefully lift the support off the car, thus exposing the wide-open spaces behind the engine. You can easily see the PS ram and the opposite ends of the tie rods. I have to do this very thing very soon to replace a bent tie rod tube. But while I am at it, I will replace the tube and both tie rod ends, since I'll have to take it in for an alignment anyway- and so will you.
After that is all done, replace all your parts from the bag onto the valances, bolt the wipers back down and GO!

At 2500 rpm the vehicle shudders side to side


I'm just guessing here but are you traveling at speed? if so I would check the inner & outer tie rod bushings & the rack& pinion bushings for wear & replace as needed. Bushing Kits are available for both repairs.

1996 chrysler concorde, how to take off the inner tie rod?


I used this website: http://www.allpar.com/fix/intrepid-steering.html It worked perfectly. To add to it, I used a tie rod puller tool rented from Oreilly Auto Parts for only a few bucks, to press the old bushing out of the inner-tie-rod end. Worked very well. Easier than removing the entire tie rod, and hammering it out. However, removing the entire tie rod would make re-assembly easier. If I did it again, I would strongly consider removing the driver side tie rod from the car, then attaching the inner tie rod end 1st. Meaning, attach the passenger side inner tie rod 1st, then the driver side inner tie rod with new bushing, then re-attach the drivers side outer tie rod. That would probably be the easiest way on this 1996 dodge concorde, due to the fuel line that's in the way....
