@  208_S/CRegal : (13 April 2015 - 05:29 AM) Ran the Regal for the first time today, think adjusted elevation was about 3000 feet, ran 15.00 at 93. Pretty happy with that for a basically stock car.

@  RegalTraveler : (10 April 2015 - 09:05 PM) I only have 1 car, so I wasn't going to tackle it on my own. It would be down for a while. My elbows are aluminum, now... they were dry-rotted plastic last fall.
@  BlackBetty : (09 April 2015 - 05:40 AM) LIM gasket job was pretty simple really. I did it with a write up and video. I bagged each part or bolt n put a number on it so I wouldnt skip a step putting it back together. Dealership wanted $1600 for LIM and oil pan gasket. Do you have plastic or aluminum elbows for the coolant?
@  RegalTraveler : (09 April 2015 - 01:40 AM) Ehh. I just been trying to keep my Regal alive a little longer. Just did my coupler, all my struts, and replaced the SC vacuum lines. My old struts were completely shot; you could depress and extend the pistons effortlessly by hand. I'm about to replace my 604-106 HVAC actuator. I'm pretty sure the only thing at this point that will brick the car will be when my LIM gaskets completely blow. There's already a lot of seepage of fluids to the outside of the engine, and I'm likely burning small amounts of oil already. Not sure it's worth the $1000+ investment to have a shop do those gaskets on a car that's barely worth $1500. Still love the car though. 1998 GS, The interior is impeccable. 144k miles on the car.

I just had both my outer tie rods replaced. I got the moog tie rods which is a good brand and those were about $45 a piece, so with labor it cost me $180.

Outer tie rod ends are cake work, but since you got parts, labor and an alignment for that, I'd say that's a heck of a deal.

You shouldn't need an alignment if the installer takes extra care to mark the threads on the tie rod. As long as the tie rod end is not installed past those marks you shouldn't need an alignment. I've gotten away without getting an alignment a few times when replacing tie rod ends.

you're 100% correct!...I've replaced alot of outer tie-rod ends and a few inner-tie rods and never had to do the alignment, all cars go strait like arrows (just like you said tho, to skrew the new tie-rods the same way/distance as the old rods , usually counting/marking threads and/or measuring distances)....the "OUTer" tie-rod end is childs-play, the "INNER" tie-rod is something else....I think at a typical mechanic shop, the labor alone for the inner tie-rod is probably $150 or more .... I made my life easy cause I bought a tool made to remove inner tie-rods....

-The inner tie rod is connected to the rack-pinion covered by the "boot"....when unskrewing the inner tierod, the pinion piston that the rod is skrewed to has to be supported & locked by a wrench so it doesn't spin with the tie-rod (if the piston spins I think that will demage the rack&pinion and you will need a new one)...either way if you have access to the inner tie rod, chances are a regular wrench is too thick to fit into the keyways so you'll have to file it down to 1/4''think, and you'll need 2 of those filed wrenched, one for the pinion piston and the other for the inner tie-rod. I measured the key-ways with a caliper to know which wrench to file.

For me replacing the INNER tie-rod is a easy job except time consuming, some cars are easier than others simply because of how much access there is to the inner tie-rod & pinion.

BTW the inner tierod is just another balljoint.
