If your looking for a tip, by now you probably have finished, but mark the one on the truck with spray paint,
Now, remove the key from the castle nut, remove nut, with a "pickle fork" if you don't have one autozone or similar will rent you one cheaply. Take the pickle fork and a hammer and split joint, unscrew and with paint marks,mark new one and replace.

SOURCE: Any info on tie rods

Yes, is in front, which you have inner and outer on both side of the wheels. worned tie rod can lead to others suspension problems. tie rod should not need replacing that often unless one hit the curve, pot hole driving on rough terrian frequently and this is the only way to can bend the tie rod. tie rod can take lots of abuse but its rearly ever need replacing. on the other side the bushing can get worned and cause steering to have extra play. An important part of your vehicle is steering assembly is the tie rods. If they get bent; try driving your vehicle It just wont happen. replacing another tie rod to me its does not sound right. get anothe opinion form another mechanic and have him look at the car and tell him exactly what you had done.

How do u repair the inner tie rod


Tie rods have replacable ends. You will need a tie rod end seperator, commonly called a "pickle fork". total length of the tie rod from ball joint tip to tip should be noted so that when you put the new end on, you can get it close enough to drive the car to the alignment shop for the needed front end alignment.

How do i loosen the outer tie rod end to remove it from the bushing once tie rod is out of streeing knuckle i know it will need to be aligined and i need to count treads when putting new outer tie rod end...


You may need a propane torch to heat up the nut on end of outer tie rod. With tie rod still attached to steering knuckle try to loosen the outer tie rod end nut that is connected to inner tie rod. Pull tie rod end back out of knuckle. Use pliers or vise grips to hold inner tie rod end while turning outer tie rod end to the left.

2000 LINCOLN LS - Outer tie rod removal assistance


Yes degreaser will not hurt it. The outer tie rod is retained only by one nut that connects it to the inner tie rod.Once you have this loosen just turn the outer tie rod to the left to remove it from the inner tie rod.

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)

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!!!)

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.
