Default Replacing outer Tie Rod

Just a quick question how many twists are there for the outer tie rod when removing/installing it, if they're all the same for my year model.

Always best practice to mark the current location with white out or something prior to removing the old tie rod. Then just thread the new one on until you get to the painted index mark. You will likely need an alignment once you are done swapping tie rods out.
