Yeah, I am working on the 90 DeVille. A couple guys told me that the car has inner tie rods and that I should look for replacement because the car appears to be in need of one. I am confused now.:crying: So which does the car have, inner or outer, cause I need to know whether I should keep the parts or go and buy new ones.

There are inner tie rods, but you need to take the boots off to get at them. They thread on to the rack.

Does anyone know whether inner tie rod replacement is a difficult job? Also, is it very expensive? I've gotten the parts, but I just need to get them put on.
Inner tie rod replacement is a piece of cake if you have the correct tools. There is a speciality tool which looks like a piece of pipe that fits over the inner tierod with the outer tierod removed. The tool has several adaptors.
You should really get the toe reset unless you have a really good set of eyes so maybe farm this one out to a front end shop.
