Volvo Inner and Outer Tie rod End Replacement Tutorial

2 -Inner tie-rod ends (FCP-Groton #9191410 – $19.50 each (7/7/2007)
2 -Rack Boot Kit (FCP Groton #9191409 – $12.00 each (7/7/2007)
Optional: 2-Outer tie rod ends (FCP Groton # 271598 and # 271599 – each $16.00)

Now, not required, but I sure do advise (don’t ask me how I know) that you consider changing your outer tie-rod ends at the same time if they haven’t been changed in awhile. This way, when you are done, you will have inners and outers done… you have to take the outer tie-rod ends off anyway.
