Well, something was bound to break eventually, right? The bushing from the leading rod broke and came out, and now I believe the tie rod to be bent(could have been before, I'm not sure). So I am going to have to replace those. Now, can I replace the inner tie-rod easy? I don't think the outer is bent, but I don't really know. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I will actually have pics tomorrow, my batteries are dead and need recharging.

The inner shouldn't be too hard, just pull the boot back from the rack, loosen the inner tie rod end, and replace. You may need to grind your wrench thinner to get it onto the flats.
