So - let me see if I have this right - to replace the inner tie rod, you have to remove the old tie rod?
Seriously - BigDE - why are you replacing the whole iner tie rod rather than just the bushings? I ask because the inner tie rod itself does not wear out - it can only get dam,aged if there is a serious accident. Only the bushings wear out. I would suggest taking the same money, getting the bushings *and* replacing the toe adjuster sleeves with a pair of aftermarket ones that have the big hex on them to replace the poorly-designed factory ones. Aftermarket has both types, so make sure you get the ones with the hex part.
