Both of the inners were completely gone and this set did the trick for minimal $.
Fair warning, while the video only shows how to do the outer tie rods, the inners are a lot more challenging. If you are going at it yourself, do yourself a favor and set aside a full day for the job. In practice, this is a much more difficult job than the YouTube tutorial makes it look. Youll need a 1/2" torque wrench along with a proper inner tie rod removal tool. NOT the clamp-on one 1A has. I saw a similar one at autozone store and its no good. 3/8" drive is just too small for the 70ft-lbs torque required, not to mention having to use a stupidly long extension (probably going to have to daisy-chain a couple). "Rent" one from Harbor Freight and save yourself the aggravation. Youll also need a long-reach flathead screw-driver to undo the retaining clip on the boot. Make sure you have a pair of work gloves, because its a DIRTY job too. The boot removal and reinstall is probably the worst part. The most difficult part is securing the rubber boot in place. I used a vacuum hose ring clamp to do that, but tightening it was a total nightmare. Im going to knock off one star for not including any sort of boot replacement clips in the set (they are break-off type that cant be re-used) that are reasonably easy to install without a shop lift. Im also going to add that while counting turns on the outer rod to get rough alignment may work with inners that are in good condition, my inners were pretty much toast. When I installed the new inners and put everything back together with the same number of outers turns, my toe-in came in at a whupping 4.4 degrees (before alignment)! Do yourself a favor and make sure you dont drive any longer than it takes you to get to a shop with an alignment machine. Other than that, happy motoring!
