Need tie rod ends for right side, is it best to replace both, or just one that needs fixed?


Replace both, as it's recommended to get an alignment afterwards. You wouldn't want to go through that expense, then have the other tie rod fail down the road.

How to replace tie tods on a 2001 and should both tie rods have a grese fighting or just one. and how to get the bands off to remove the boot .


ok, Tie rods don't have boots. The only thing up front with a boot is the CV joint. You have to use a cutter to remove the bands from a CV joint however, unless your trying to repair the joint you don't want to do that. There is no lubrication point inside the boot you need to reach. If for some reason you need to remove that boot you need to get a CV joint Boot Repair kit to do this as it will have replacement bands to use in the repair. Because of the nature of a CV joint and it's importance to operating correctly I don't recommend trying to do a Joint repair on your own. On the Tie Rod typically you will replace the out end. You need to have a tie Rod puller to remove the tie rod end off the "A" frame after you have released the lock nut in the center then simply unscrew the tie rod end. You'll want to make sure you mark the old tie rod somehow so you can put beside the new part and mark it so you know how far to screw that in so the Alignment matches, as close as possible. The tie rod puller is a special tool you can get from Auto Zone to remove the Tie rod end from the "A" frame.

Replacing tie rods


Based on your statement of "replacing tie rods" my best recommendation is to advise you to get the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. I have no idea what you are having problems with and this manual will give you step by step directions on how to do this job.

Tie rod


No. Go to Napa, get the bushing repair kit. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. Remove the air inlet tube. Should be 2 7/8" bolts retaining the inner tie rod ends. Loosen both. Remove one at a time, replace bushing with kit. Use some synthetic brake grease on the bushings. I recommend Napa sylglide. Replace the bolt, but do not tighten all the way. Do the other the same way. Tightnen both bolts, reinstall the air inlet tube, get vehicle aligned.

I need to replace the inner tie rods on my 97' conti......need a diagram of how to and any other info pertinent to the job - Bair


If this is a rack and pinion type steering, in order to remove the inner tie rods you will first have loosen the jam nut at the outer tie rod end,next unbolt the outer tie rod from the steering knuckle, unscrew the outer tie rod end off (be sure to count how many turns to remove), next remove the inner bellows boot (black boot) from the tie rod / rack and pinion, next is to unscrew the inner tie rod from the rack assembly (the do make a tool for this to make it easier) but if you do not have the tool,you can sometimes use a big pair of channel locks or a big enough wrench to fit on the fitting on the inside of the inner tie rod, and just unscrew the inner tie rod (normal left=loosen, right=tighten). Hope this helps. Would also recommend having it aligned after you are finished.

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.
