The outer or inner tie rod?? Shit happens man. Just sucks cuz after the tie rods r changed then its time for an alignment...might as well change the other side too. Oh and check the ball joints.

Yea gonna change both outer. What's a good brand that will last ?
It's more the diff pinion seal that's pissing me off.

I used moog. Kinda expensive but they are greasable. For balljoints I used the cheaper brand (duralast). They also are greasable. Good luck.

How bad is the pinion leak? If it just weeps a little I wouldn't get too concerned, just check the level every so often.

Also, because I'm forever cynical and suspicious, have you checked the pinion seal or the tie rod ends yourself? The dealer might be just trying to drum up extra business.
