Replacing the outer tie rod is easy to do. However the inner tie rod requires special tools to complete. Tool number J34028 is required. Because of the involvement for this process, I strongly recommend getting a manual that provides step by step instructions and pictures to identify parts. Also, have the vehicle alignment rechecked after doing the work.
Let me know if you have other questions. And please understand, because of the involvement and component being worked on (steering) there is too much room for error via the internet.
