Well, I am finally going to attempt to change the tie rods (both sides
and both inner and outer) on my 94 Olds Silhouette. In the service
manual it states that the Rack needs to be removed to do the inners.
Are there any tricks to be able to remove the inners without removing
the Rack? A couple of shops I called about this stated that they don't
remove the rack to perform this job. How? Special tool?
How high do I need to have this van lifted, on jack stands, to allow me
to both work on it, and remove the rack (if there is no other way)? I'm
hoping to accomplish this task this weekend, then I'll have it aligned
I am also going to replace the front struts, and rear shocks. I don't
plan any issues with this part of the job.
Any and all help, suggestions, anecdotes would be appreciated and welcome.
