The inners are covered by a boot. I did mine by myself. I would deff reccomend doing both and if u get some wondering on the highway i would buy the bushings from wheelers and u can do them urself easily.

so i re checked my tie rods and there is no play in either of them.....so i just did the rack bushiings....my tires are crowning and have uneven lug wear....should i just get it re aligned? what else could the wear be due to? it has been aligned and they said it would probebly not hold due to my tie rods......they are solid as i rock the shop was trying to screw me out some money i guess.....don't tie rods adjust toe and not camber anyways.....any help appreciated.
