So while I was getting my rear brakes done the other day, the tech showed my that my outer left tie rod was loose and jiggling. He said it's not good and yeah, I know it's not good to have bad tie rods. Outer right tie rod moves but only a little. I already ordered a pair to replace both rods but is it something a mere mortal can do or should I leave it up to a shop?
I've changed a valve cover gasket, heater core and installed a hitch on
a 2019 Subaru myself once before. On the lift, it didn't seem like that
big a deal to change out the outer tie rods. The tech said it's a 15
minute job per tie rod. Does that sound right? Thoughts?
