outer tie rod ends

i need to do my outer tie rod ends soon and is there a trick to getting these ones off or what i tried back when i bought the car to get the drivers side off because the rubber was shot but i couldn't but the end seemed fine so i put a new rubber on it and now it has a tiny bit off play in it
are they threaded normally or oppossite threads?
any tips to make this job easier

btw it is a 93 intrepid 3.3

i recently had to replace the outer tie rod ends on my car too.
i just used LOTS of rust penetrating spray and a large monkey wrench on the large rubber part (easier to get more torque into that rather than using a little wrench on the actual spot for a wrench on the tie rod ends). the drivers side one came off fairly easy, the passanger side was more of a challange.

Main thing is getting the old ones off of the coupler. Once you do that, its a piece of cake.

They make a tool for removing it from the wheel side. Its basicly like a big crow bar. You might be able to get them out without it.

oh yeah, i almost forget about heat....
after we hosed it with rust penetrating lube, my dad took a torch to the passanger side tie rod end to loosen up the rust, it worked like a charm.
