In addition, I have conflicting information about using a wrench to isolate the rack when removing the inner tie rod. The instructions that come with the tie rod indicate to use a wrench both removing and installing the new tie rod, while some instructions at autozone online site states "Notice: Do not change the rack bearing preload adjustment before removing the inner tie rod from the steering rack. This could cause damage to the pinion or the steering rack or both" and "Important: Do not hold the steering rack while removing the inner tie rod if the preload adjustment has not been changed".
So which one do I believe?
