I recently bought a 2003 trailblazer ext ls. It has 80K on it and runs excellent(knock on wood). I just brought it to a inspection facility to get it inspected. They told me I have a bad outer tie rod end in the front passenger side. I am originally from NJ and just moved to salt lake city so tools are an issue. Does anyone know how much I can get a tie rod end for? Whats a better brand? Should I change both sides? What tools will I need to change it and how long is the process? Im moving back out of SLC in January and would like to change it before I make the long haul back home. the mechanic said he wanted 400 to fix it and I would like to attempt to fix it myself if possible. Also Im looking to change tires. any advice on tires?
