Question about GMC Sierra 1500
It's not hard if you have some mechanical experience. The toughest part of the job is hammering the the tie rod ends loose. Each end has a castle nut and press fitted ball and socket. There is also a threaded end to adjust the tow in. You mark the threads or measure exactly before taking them apart. A tool called a pickle fork is used to separate the joints. Put it back together and tighten the nuts (around 80 ft pounds) keeping the thread depth the same as the old ends. Get it re-aligned at a shop after finishing and have them check the front out thoroughly. Good luck, Jack.
