Question about Cars & Trucks
I'm having trouble accessing the iner bolts.
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.

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.

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.
