Best Answer

The only way to repair a worn tie rod is to replace it with a new one.

Remove the crown bolt from the tie rod.

Use a tie rod "fork" tool to remove the old tie rod from the axle assembly.

Unscrew the old tie rod from the rack and pinion assembly.

Install the new tie rod in reverse order.

Make certain to have the front end aligned afterward, otherwise you will wear out the tires and have poor control.
