VX Tie Rod

I need to replace the left-side inner and outer tie rods on my 1995 VX. I don't think that the outer ones will be too hard. What can be said about the inner ones? I hope to re-use the inner boot.

Thanks.

Usually there are some special tools/clips needed to reseal the boots. Any inners I have needed I always too to a "rack shop" that specializes in steering racks.

zip ties work wonders to put the boots back on. I know several shops that do it that way.

as far as doing the tie rod, inners usually do require special tools or a little bit of magic. sometimes both
