Default Front Inner Tie Rod End Bushing Kit Help

Last week I had noticed some vibration in the steering wheel along with some noise when I turned so I took it back to the shop that rebuilt my struts because the last time they did them a bad bearing plate got installed but the shop fixed that issue free of charge so I thought with the vibration and the noise it had it was probably the struts again, well low and behold it wasn't them because the shop tore them all down again and found nothing wrong with them. Well they did find the problem and that is the front inner tie rod bushings are bad so I ordered the Moog kit for 19.99 and now I needing some help on how to install the kit because I'm not really for sure on how to due it along with I can't find any info online to help me out so I have turned to everyone here again for help. I will post a link to the parts I'm talking about. MOOG MOOG-K6677 Front Inner Tie Rod End Bushing Kit Made by MOOG. Thanks.

Wow. All of that to just replace the bushing. There has to be another way to due this because I really don't want to pull the rack and pinion out of my car to replace the bushings. I'm mainly needing to get the first locking plate off that has the notches in it.

Inner tie rod bushings, or do you mean the inner tie rods? There is an inner tie rod tool....you remove the outer tie rod....remove the bellows...install the tool and use a ratchet and extension to remove....no need to remove the rack and pinion......

By the way....this shop took apart a strut, instead of checking the front end first?

Yes my car has inner tie rod end bushings. They were in really bad shape, both had completely fell apart. So after a few hours I was able to get them replaced. Not an easy job at all but 98 percent of the noise went away. There is still a little bit of a bearing plate noise coming from the struts.
