Just had my Vectra (2002 1.8LS) MOT'd last week, and both inner tie rods on the steering were flagged as advisories. I know I don't actually need to do anything about them right now, however I thought I would just get them changed anyway.
I now have the replacement rods, but was wondering if any of you guys had changed these yourself, and what tool you used to unscrew them off the end of the rack? Space is obviously fairly limited, and although I have seen reports of folk just using stilsons in some cases, I'd be interested to hear of any 1st hand experiences on this.
Also, I see that you get tools specifically for this purpose, such as :
Looks like it would certainly make life easier, but no point spending another £30-£40 if I don't need to.
Any advice much appreciated.
