I need to replace the inner tie rods on my 2006 987 S. Has anyone done this? Any special tools needed? Degree of difficulty???

I need to replace outers and will just do both inners and outers while in there and an alignment will be needed. Pelican does have a write up that gives a good idea of difficulty.

It was easy. I was following article in pelican but could not get my pipe wrench to loosen the inner tie rods.
Bought the cheapo inner tie rod puller from harbor freight and it made life so much easier. It surprisingly came with the insert that fits out size.
FYI, I tried to rent the tie rod puller from auto parts store but our inner tie rod size is metric.
