Yes, there are inners on it. The outer tie rod is screwed onto the inner tie rod. If you look back at the pivot point where the inner bolts on, there shouldn't be any in and out movement

Got it thanks. it's just under the boot. As far as I know this car has never had a timing belt at 152K I think that would also be a good idea.

Timing belt and water pump is recommended at 70k, it really is a good idea to change it. I usually see them snap around 150-200k. It's not too bad to do on there. As long as you set the tension properly, and line the timing marks up correctly. I recommend using the back side of a razor blade to line up the mark on the camshaft. It's at a slight angle. Really easy to be off a tooth if you just look at it

Went to Crazy Ray's junk yard yesterday. Was looking for wheels, only found one lancer and one wheel was damaged and the tires were no good. Not sure it's worth looking there for wheels. Would have been great to find decent wheels with tires for 50. They don't charge for the tire just the wheel. The good, found washer reservoir cap, passenger side mirror. Gonna keep looking in Craigslist for a decent set ready to pass inspection. If I get tired of looking maybe I'll treat my son to a basic set from tirerack or the like. What other brands fit. Pattern is 4X100 but the wheels that are slapped on there now don't have a large enough hole in them. the lugs have it tight but it's not the right fit.

I guess now it's time to start timing belt/ brakes/ tie rod ends/ windshield.

Just don't buy the lancer oz wheels for it. They are 4 X 114.3. Most Honda's are 4 X 100. If you go on tirerack, they are pretty good at what sizes fit it. You can also put it in the simulator so you can see what they look like on the car.

Does anyone make a strut spring already assembled. Not that I can't put a spring on. I just like the ease of a complete strut. Doesn't even seem like the parts are readily available. Rock auto does not even carry springs? Ebay is full of aftermarket lowering springs. I'm just looking for decent parts at a reasonable price.

Unless you go with coilovers, you're probably not going to find a strut/spring assembly. The springs aren't something that typically go bad, you're better off just buying struts and swapping your springs to the new struts. Unless you want to change the ride height, then I would go with coilovers rather than a lowering spring. Least with coilovers, you can adjust the ride height, and the stiffness

Ok, so far timing belt off, water pump came yesterday along with inner and outter tie rods, rotors, pads, plugs, belts, filter.

What size bore is needed in rims? From searching I found stock is 14" 4X100mm bolt pattern and 40mm offset. With these tire sizes being stock or near for 14 and 15 inch tires. 185/65/14, 215/50/15, 195/55/15, 205/50/15, 205/55/15. Seems 14" tires are the least expensive. Remember this is just going to be a first car. Hope he will work with me on reinstall of water pump timing belt and do all the rest with only my supervision. I was thinking wheels somthing like this but he has added no input so far. But they say they do not fit, that is why I'm asking hub bore question. I guess I could just go measure...Duh. Still wanted your opinions. I just found out Cobalt wheels are 4X100 15x6. Probably a lot of those around.

I know what I'm asking about is fitment. Look at these two wheels. Hub bore, offset are the same one is 1/2" wider which will make backspacing 1/2" deeper I assume. I can't believe that makes it come up as "does not fit your vechicle" .

Supposed to fit.

Close but not supposed to fit.
