The auto store has a tie rod tool kit but, the three adapters are too small or big.

    snap on and mac tools make great inner tie rod tools. they run around 45-60 but are well worth it.

    You sometimes need to wedge a piece of metal in the gap to make it work. Or, there is a removal tool that looks like an exhaust clamp that attaches to the end and you use an extender bar with a socket to use it. See if either of these options work for you. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoX8tM...
