What is the correct tool to replace the inner tie rod?
on 2000 Saturn LS1

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

Asked by for the 2000 Saturn LS1
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=A0PDoX8tMEVP3hIAzdCJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3Dinner%2Btie%2Brod%2Bend%2Btool%26n%3D30%26ei%3Dutf-8%26y%3DSearch%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701-s%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D15&w=500&h=500&imgurl=s7.sears.com%2Fis%2Fimage%2FSears%2F00960678000%3Fhei%3D500%26amp%3Bwid%3D500%26amp%3Bop_sharpen%3D1&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pricethattool.com%2Fbrand%2FCal-Van-Tools%2F3.html&size=28.9+KB&name=Cal-Van+Tools+Inner+Tie+Rod+Removal+Tool+-+946+Best+Price&p=inner+tie+rod+end+tool&oid=6dca8f3ff0c1bde0fc8ae941481479ce&fr2=&fr=yfp-t-701-s&tt=Cal-Van%2BTools%2BInner%2BTie%2BRod%2BRemoval%2BTool%2B-%2B946%2BBest%2BPrice&b=0&ni=32&no=15&tab=organic&ts=&sigr=11n6a7tvk&sigb=13tk7blq8&sigi=12c7ri5s5&.crumb=5TkwGM7xvUv
