It isn't very hard to do you just need to have the tool to do it. Some parts store will rent them. It is a very long socket. You will need to first measure from the center of the outer tie to the outer of the inner tie. Then you remove the outer tie and then the inner tie rod boot and then check for any lock that keeps the inner tie from unthreading. Now with the inner tie rod socket remove the inner tie. Then put everthing back in reverse order then check you measurement (this keeps you alignment close). Now go to your local alignment shop and have it realigned.
