Yes, there's a special tool called an "inner tie rod tool". It has special crowsfoot type pieces that attach to a long tube with a 1/2' drive ratchet hole in it. First, remove the outer tie rod (COUNT THE # OF REVOLUTIONS WHILE UNSCREWING IT!!) Take off the jamb nut. Take the boot off. Use the tool to remove and replace the inner tie rod. Re-install the boot, jamb nut, and outer tie rod. If you count the # of turns it takes to remove the outer tierod, you'll be able to set it back where it was enough to drive it. i still recommend an alignment though.

Replacing steering components is not that easy, and you have to take it somewhere for an alignment afterwards anyway, and if the shop did not do the work they are going to charge you a lot for the alignment. I'd take it somewhere and let them fix it for you.

I wouldn't take a long trip with bad steering components. If something broke, the best outcome is you'd be stranded, but the worst could be you lose control and crash. Paying somebody to fix it would seem really cheap compared to that!

SOURCE: Had new tires put on my wife's 2005 Grand Caravan

You could replace it at but based on my own with these vehicles most of the time has just been the outer tie rod that was bad. When they don't have a listing for an inner tie rod many times it means the rack needs to be replaced. You can try calling a NAPA or Carquest and see if they have a listing for it. If not it may be recommended to replaced the rack. My personal opinion would be to replace the the outer tie rod and take it back for the alignment. If they still say the inner is loose from that point.Most of the time it's just the outer being so loose that its hard to tell if the inner is really bad or not.

Why does a 2001 dodge grand caravan not stay in alignment


Several things that can cause the alignment to not stay in specifications. Worn parts such as inner or outer tie rods, lower ball joints,or bad struts are the most common failures. Engine mounts that are weak or broken can also effect the alignment.

HOW TO REPLACE BENT TIE ROD


if its the outer tie rod then you can loosen the lock nut on threaded portion that attaches to the inner tie rod then remove the nut that locks the tie rod to the spindle assembly.you can hit the area were the tie rod stud goes through the hole to loosen it to remove it from the assembly.then count the number of turns to remove it from the inner tie rod end.then install the new one the number of turns you took the old one off and reassemble in reverse order.its a good idea to get the alignment done to make sure the wheels are positioned right and not wear the tires out early.

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.
