I never found any good info on this so wanted to make a post if it can help someone. They dont offer a separate part # for the inner tie rods and say you have to purchase the entire rack.

I doubt it's too common these go bad but my car was in an accident and my driver inner toe rod had play at the joint. So I decided to purchase a used rack pretty cheap and use the rod from that then part out the rest of the rack.

They have a machined part on the rack side to put a wrench and then I used a pipe wrench to easily crack loose the inner rod.

Good information. Thanks for posting it.

The manufacturer of the used rack you purchased should be cast or stamped somewhere on the housing. By contacting them in a polite manner we may be able to find out who supplies the inner tie rod assembly (if they don't make it themselves) and possibly purchase a new one directly from them. Obviously you don't need a new one now but this approach may enable us to determine who makes these parts and help someone in the future.
