SOURCE: Tie rod ends on 05 dodge durango
Hi there.... Tie rod ends are not hard to do at all. Take the tire off, you'll see the tie rod end. Take the nut off the end on the spindle side and lossen the nut at the other end. With a hammer, hit the section that the spindle end is inserted to until it pops out. Then unscrew the tie rod. Make sure you count how many turns it takes to remove the old tie rod end..... screw the new one in the same amount of turns that it took the old one to come off. this way you will have it close to what the old one was at. You will have to get a wheel alignment afterwards in order to have it all set up. Hope this helps you out.

Testimonial: "thanks for the help"
The torque spec for the tyrod ends are 45 foot pounds.
• Unlock the steering wheel before jacking up the vehicle. This allows the Steering linkage to be moved for the best possible access to the ends' fasteners by grabbing one of the axle hubs
• Secure the vehicle on jackstands before removing the wheels.
• Buy name-brand tie-rod ends. Saving a few dollars on cheaply made parts isn't worth the risk.
• Mark the tie-rod ends' positions on their threaded adjusters before removing the old ends. This way, the new ends can be screwed in to approximately the same position as the old ones to get wheel allimint in the ballpark.
• Have the vehicle professionally aligned afterward, especially if the steering wheel isn't centered or the vehicle pulls one direction when attempting to drive straight.
