So it has started to snow here and I am all over the road. I know one o my issues is that I need an allignment because I did swap out the old tie rod ends. However, when I did the tie rod ends I also noticed that my inner tie rods were bad. When I picked them up they just fell down with no resistance. I never did do an alignment after changing those tie rods. Now I have ordered the parts for the inner tie rod replacement in an effort to solve my issues driving on snow and bad outer tire wear on rear tires. My question is this, when I ordered the replacement tie rods there is a small locking allen wrench screw near the part that screws onto the rack. I can't know for certain that mine has been replaced or is OEM but generally speaking when I uninstall the tie rods will there be an allen wrench nut I will have to deal with on the old one? The car is old and rusted the thought of having to remove a tiny allen screw at the pinion makes me not want to do this job. I know I will need a loan a tool to remove the ends and the inner tie rods. I Do have a bore scope but to get a view I think the boot would have to already be off. At that point I would be committed. Thanks or the replies and happy holidays!
