    Hello all,

    I need to replace my inner and outer tie rod ends and was wondering if this is the tool that can help with the removal?

    Amazon.com: Cal-Van Tools 946 Low Profile Inner Tie Rod Tool: Automotive

    I tried renting one from Autozone but unfortunately the one they gave me was too small.

    Thoughts?

    I'm going through the same thing with my wife's car, none of the sockets in the rental tool kit fit her car's tie rod. I'm planning on using a pipe wrench.
