Default Tie rod

I was just wondering how hard it was to install an inner tie rod end on a 95 Buick riviera
Because this shop want to charge me 78.00 to install one on my car so that I can certify it

For 78 bucks I'd let the shop do the work for ya. For one thing you might need a special tool to remove/replace the inner tie rod from the rack assembly. I'm not sure about The Riv, but there wasn't much room to work with on my Olds with just a set of ramps.

Some here at the BC have done it. But not me.

i replaced the tie rod on my bros tempo, and it wasnt hard, if ur a penny pincher go ahead and do it yourself, but otherwise i would let the shop do that.

Wow, that is a really good price from the shop. I did mine myself. It was rather simple actually. Yet, they wanted 180 dollars to do it for me. If I was you I would probably let them deal with it!
