    The inner and outer tie rod ends as well as the bellows can all be replaced separately.

    It may be cheapest to replace the tie rod ends and rack boots at the same time as the vehicle we need to be aligned afterwards. Replacing the ball joints now may slightly reduce a duplication of labor of having to re rack the car and remove the wheels.
