The outer tie rods are easy and the dealer would charge around 200-250 for the labor including the alignment. The inner tie rods are a little more work and require a special tool. the dealer would probably charge 300-350 labor including alignment. If you do the work with your friend i still recommend you to get the alignment done. Good luck

well id get the alignment done where i work, we have an alignment machine. how much would just the tie rods cost if i wanted to do it by myself?


Just a guess but outers are about 25-30 each and inners are about 40 each. Look online for better pricing. thats just a guess
