Replacing Inner Tie Rods Fox Body Ford -EricTheCarGuy
After shooting "1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look" I decided to replace the
right inner tie rod on the Fairmont. It was pretty loose and was also
wearing my tire on that side a little funny. I thought it would be a good
idea to just go ahead and replace it. As you can see in the video it's not
that difficult. I had a harder time with the cotter pin than the inner tie
rod. Still, this video will apply to all fox bodies of this vintage and get
you the information you need to know to get the job done.
Here's some useful links.

The Ford Fairmont is a compact car produced by Ford Motor Company for the
North American market. Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was
produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for
the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its
Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet.
The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford
Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely
related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the
1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury
Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.
