Hi havenable,

First thing to do, Chock the wheels and apply the parking brake....Loosen the wheel nuts ,jack up the front wheels and remove the wheels....Which ever side you start from, turn the steering so that the joint so that it becomes more visible....check to see if it has split pins or self locking nuts....if split pins, remove them then carry on ahead and remove the nuts....
....The shaft of the tie rod end is tapered, (a cone shape )....and it's fitted into a tapered hole where it fits into the hub.... It is possible to purchase a special wedge shaped tool to put between the tie rod end and the housing....If you have that or a ball joint puller use either one of those....with the wedge hammer it home with a large hammer....the ball joint remover, fit it to the joint, and screw the center bolt home to meet the top of the joint (where the threaded part comes thru the housing.....If you don't have these tools, the old fashioned way is to use the hammer against the side of the housing, where the tapper is fitted into it....strike it hard and three or four blows should allow it to fall out....Tighten the new joint onto the tie rod, to make the rod about the same length as it was when you removed it from the rod....Tighten the locking nut against the shoulder of the new part and then fit the tapper into the housing and tighten that too...chek all the bolts and nuts once again and reassemble the vehicle....Your fist trip will then be to an alignment center, to have to 'toe in' adjustment carried out....Job done....

Best regards Johngee10

Yes a worn out or broken shock will cause tire wear. But most likely you have a suspension problem. Need to check for play in upper & lower ball joints & inner & outer tirods.

How to take apart an inner tirod end passenger side for 2002 dodge caravan ?


Use a tie-rod 'pickle fork'. Brace the tie rod with wood against a solid surface, use the pickle fork to remove the tie rod end, out of the center link. (Cotter pin, and nut removed first, of course!)

Here is a photo of a pickle fork,

(Your local auto parts store should have one. They don't cost very much. Make sure it is a tie rod pickle fork, and Not a ball joint pickle fork. Look at both at the store, and you'll see what I mean)
