Replace Rockwell Tie Rod Ends

The grease billows on my Gillig tie rod ends have cracked so it is time to install new ends.

The job looks easy if I do not have to raise the axle and tire to do the job. (air leveling)

Otherwise I will need to pay the shop $170 to install said ends.

Yes, I know I will need an alignment in either case.

Has anyone done this on a bus?

Do you recommend that I try it with no prior experience?

For $170.00 I wouldent bother doing it myself. Sounds like a good price. But I do like to tinker and might take a look at it and give it a shot.

The Google reference gives no boot info?

Did you have to remove the front wheel to do the boots?

tierod ends

No, chock the wheels in the rear, raise the front of the coach with safety stands and go to work.

I can find the dust boots for my rig so I will try just to replace them myself as the first tactic.

Thanks to all for the ideas.

I will post back with the result in a couple of weeks.
