tie rod end replacement

looking into replacing my own tie rod ends, googled around for some how-to/tutorials but couldnt find too much, was hoping you guiys could lead me in the right direction on how to go about replacing these.

Its pretty easy to just gotta undo two nuts per side and measure how far it sticks out so your alignment can be close

Take off the wheel
Try to mark how deep the tie rod screws on the rack ..
Get some needle nose pliers and take out the pin on the tie rod crown nut
Get a 15mm and remove the crown nut
Now put the crown nut on the threads but only spin it a couple times..
Get a good size hammer and hit the **** out of the tie rod on its side til it drops down .. Then unscrew the nut and just tap the tie rod down .. And unscrew it off.
You need a alignment after your done
