Pretty simple but you'll need some special tools
however, in my Ford Service manual there are not a lot of pictures but I've included some that you might like

honestly, the more I think about it, you may find better successes just replacing the rack as an assembly since the cost for the tools may cost you more than the rack

that being said though, just make sure all your lines are oiled well with a professional grade anti-rust lube like PB blaster because if you live in the rust belt you may end up replacing the lines too

Mechanic says inner tie rod needs to be replaced. How do I know?


Raise the vehicle and wiggle the wheels left and right. You would know which one has a play if its the inner or the outer. the inner tie rod connects close to the rack and pinion. The outer is close to the tire. Goodluck

I have loose tie rod ends on both the right and left side of a ford 1999 expedition. On the passenger side the bottom bolt is missing completely. Do I need to replae both with a whole new assembly?


If the tie rods are just loose,you replace the bolts

Obviously if the end joint or brg is worn & loose you replace
them. (not the entire arm,just the joint)

You can replace the bolt or the tie rods yourself,
then have the front aligned within a few days as the
toe will be off.

I assume your talking outer ties rod ends,
not inner --- inside the steering rack boots!!

The inner joint does require the complete, what
looks like a rod or arm to be replaced

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

Inner tie rod end on passenger side needs replaced


its not that hard its just a pain getting access to it as you will find the unit is tight and there is not a lot of room for leverage.

Replace rack/pinion


The book calls for about 5 hours labor with a lift, air tools, and experience. It's a tough job. Here are a few tips, Take the lines loose from the rack; not the pump. With the tires off, Remove the nuts from the outer tie rods.Run the nuts back on the tie rods stud and hit the steering knuckle where the tie rod's stud goes through.This will free the stud. Remove the steering shaft from the rack.(take the bolt all the way out.Remove rack mounting bolts. Twist,pull ****,and fight the rack out the side of the car with the most room. The new rack will have inner tie rods already installed. Make sure the new rack is centered.(Turn left then right count the turns then center same # of turns from left to right). Count the threads or measure from the outer tie rod's jam nut to the last thread on the inner tie rod.(you can leave the jam nut in place and take the outer tie rod off and measure from the jam nut to the end of the rod.)Install the outer tie rods. Replace rack in car. hook up steering shaft.Bolt up rack. Hook up lines. Add fluid and work rack back and forth to bleed air. recheck fluid. Have it aligned. (or just take it to a shop.This job is going to be a nightmare!!!)

You have to have a special tool like this
http://motors.shop.ebay.com/items/Parts-Accessories_Automotive-Tools__W0QQ_nkwZfordQ20innerQ20tieQ20rodQ20toolQQ_fromfsbZQQ_trksidZm270Q2el1313QQ_odkwZQQ_osacatZPartsQ2dAccessoriesQ5fAutomotiveQ2dTools

Disconnect the outer tie rod and remove,then remove boot,then use special tool to remove inner tie rod. You will then have to have it aligned. You can use a tape measure to get it close enough to drive,just mark one of the grooves in the tire so you are measuring the exact same points,measure from tire to tire in the front of front tires then take a measurement at the rear of front tires and adjust the outer tire rods until the measurements are pretty close to equal.
