New here, this is my first post.....

I need to replace the tie rod (and end) on the right side. Is there an easy way to get to it? I have the exhaust out and can still barely reach my finger underneath the rod end to touch the nut that holds it on. I don't see any easy way to get to it other than start pulling things out (like the engine). there's got to be a better way to change a tie rod. Right???

Thanks for any help.

Looks like you'll have to drill out the 3 rivets holding the boot,turn your bars to the left
that should expose the right inner tie rod.
