Do you have to replace both tie rod ends on a Windstar?

not unless both of them have play to them, we only recommend the tie rods that have play to them, and yes an alignment will be needed afterwards.some shops will recommend both, assuming they both have the same amount of mileage on the tie rods. if there is any question to the amount of play a tie rod has, just replace the other one also, it will save you having to pay for an alignment in the future
