    Have bad OEM outer tie rod ends. Considering replacing them with Moog TREs.
    Which ones? With zerk fittings (ES80805) at about $35 each or without zerk fittings (ES80804) at about $49 each? Both have lifetime guarantees.

    Will need an alignment. Since it is a RWD car does it need only a 2 wheel alignment?

    If not how do you align the rear wheels?

    Cant do alignments on a straight axle. And tie rod ends - I hate doing maintenance. I'd go for the sealed tie rod ends myself.

    Changed outer and inner tie rods - alignment next
    After removing outer tie rod found inner tie rod very loose. Removed and replaced both on both sides.

    Will align next. Seems like you have to pay for a 4 wheel alignment whether you need it or no
