    I remember seeing a YouTube on replacing the inner rod ends on a R&P setup. Look for that.

    Thank you for the post - but it is not the Tie rod but the Rack itself that has the play. I have not seen this before. I have replaced tie rods before and I'm sure this is not my problem.

    There are inner joints that wear. You can't see them (under the dust boots).

    Sorry, I did not know there was any tie rods under the boot. I will check that out[COLOR="Silver"]

    ----------

    ----------

    I see on rock auto they sell Raybesto and Moog inner tie rods, does anyone know which company makes better parts, Raybesto's are $15 more per piece and im ok with spending the money if there better but I have never heard anything good or bad with either company and thought I would ask others if they know which is better.

    I plan on replacing both the inners and the outters so I have the same quistion for the outters but also they list the AC Delco also

    Thanks for everyones help
