I'm about to change my inner/outer tie rod ends that have a lot of slop in them. Hopefully it will take care of my mystery front end clunk. Can anyone who has done this to their 05-07 WK tell me if the inner tie rod has the flat area a wrench can fit on to remove it or is a special tool required for the smooth end??? I've read somewhere that the earlier models have no flat spot but the 08 + do.....

They don't have a flat spot. You'll need to use a pipe wrench. Your aftermarket one should have a flat spot tho

My computer went down for the count yesterday. What's a good solid laptop that would be decently good at video editing for under 600$?

Anyone have spyder lights and or know problems with them? Would love to get these since i wouldn't have to paint them and fail at it like the ones i have now.

I wanted to do these as well. Will these work with HID halogens or do you have to use the D1S bulbs?

To be honest i was hoping my hid kit lights would work. Idk though now.

How hard would it be to change out my 3.73 gears to 4.10? Throwing around some ideas in my head.
