Looking for opinions. I know how to replace the tie rod end, but I wonder...how important is getting a front end alignment afterward, if you mark the tie rod and count the turns when screwing it back on? I need to save money wherever I can...but if it'll end up costing me more in the end, I'll do it. The car doesn't have any alignment problems now (that I can see or feel, at least), aside from the tie rod end...and even that is still minor enough that it hasn't affected the tire wear. I just want to fix it before it gets worse. So anyway, should I plan on paying for the tie rod end + an alignment? Thanks!
