Help buying Tie Rod parts

Hey all, so my 93 4.0L desperately needs new tie rods. I dont have the cash to send it out so im doing the work myself. Im pretty comfortable tackling this work but im not 100% im ordering all the correct parts. Here is what I think ill need.

Are there any parts im missing? I have a decent set of tools; including a pickle fork and torque wrench, but is there anything else I need? Grease?
If someone has a wirte up on doing this that would be awesome. Thanks

Here's a diagram of the steering. Don't buy those cheap parts you have links too, you'll be buying them again very soon. Get Moog parts and yes, you need to Grease them. They're pretty simple to replace, you will need an alignment when you're finished. You should just need #13, 14, 15 and 17 and like I said, buy Moog parts, not the ones I have linked to either.

I installed Luke's links, links.com. It's an adjustable replacement kit and rebuilds what you have. You need a grinder to do the job and avoids having to get an alignment. This kit started for the ram pickups as they eat tie rods. I put these on my truck and YJ. The only issue I had was they rubbed against the stock wheels. You'll be ok if you have offset rims. They run about $50 each. Check them out...

You'll spend about $200 getting Moog parts, definitely worth it (assuming you get new sleeves and everything).

You can do your own alignment afterwards! It takes 30 min and saves you $50! There are lots of write-ups on it.

Once you get whatever your replacements are clean up the old ones and put new cotters pins with them in the old boxes and keep for trail spares in your trail gear box. They will save you tons of money one day.

That is a good point. I don't go wheeling but I would have put mine up in the classified for free if I would have thought about that 2 months ago.

I replaced all my front end steering items with MOOG Parts. Great investment..
Moog's site will give you part numbers needed, then shop around,
Ebay & Amazon is where I got all my parts.
