No, you will not need any special tools.
Some people like to use a pickle fork for removing the outer tie rod ends from the steering knuckles. I don't do it that way, but if you like them, you can rent them at a lot of auto part stores by simply giving them a deposit and then get your money back when you return the tool.
And other then watching out for any rusty nuts and bolts that might break off on a 10 year old car, there isn't any tricky things to watch out for.
