As a suggestion, change the whole rack instead of just one inner. If one side has failed, the other side is not far behind it for failure

Why change the rack? Just replace both inner and outer tie rods all at the same time. You can borrow the tool from Oreilly with a fully refundable deposit. It's basically just a really long socket.

Perfect, thanks. I am hoping to replace inner, outer and some other things too.

Make sure you do an alignment whem your done. I work on my own car and truck but tie rods something ill just pay for. Cant spend a day changing out $200 worth of tie rods only to have to pay for alighnment. Paybskmeone the 300 and its done right. Unless you knkw how to use 2x4 amd a tape measure for alignment..

Just a suggestion from real world experience, take it for whatever value you want to.

I am going to try and find a reputable shop around here. I would probably get the parts myself, Moog from Rockauto.com. Thanks for the advice everyone! I was skeptical about doing it myself anyways

I understand that racks don't last forever and will eventually start to leak but a job like that would be way over Libers head. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I've replaced a few racks in my day and it's definitely something I don't care at all to do.

If someone were dead set on keeping their car for years to come and it needs the tie rods replaced, then a rack would definitely be something to replace at the same time. I suppose you could call it preventative maintenance.

O'Reilly's for sure has it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I'm replacing upper and lower tie rod ends as well as lower ball joints sometime soon whenever I get the time to do it. I guess the inner's are pretty tough to do so just a fair warning..Just what I've heard anyway.

Does oreilly match price? Rockauto has all the Moog parts for cheaper.

They are obviously not going to match the price to an online store, that wouldn't ever work out. But yes we have the low price guarantee on a similar product from competing auto stores.

They price-matched/beat the price of an online store for my KYB struts when I ordered them 4 years ago...

Doesn't hurt to try and ask them. Maybe they will meet you in the middle and take a little bit of?

Really? Hmm, I figured it wouldn't.. I'll have to look into that, and I'll let you guys know. I work tomorrow so I'll check.
