Need to replace one of the rear tie rods (along with some other stuff)

Should i replace both sides or just the bad one?

Replace the bad one, no need to bother with the other if it's not worn. Make sure to get an alignment afterwards.

Just because you don't call it by it's proper name doesn't mean you should be sarcastic towards others.

You should replace both rear tie rods and make sure you buy new hardware for them. After you replace the tie rods, you will need an alignment. 5 times out of ten the hardware is frozen so it makes aligning the car difficult or impossible. If you replace both, you will have new hardware on both and you will be able to align the car without problems.

would be cool if we had 4 wheel steering like the old old preludes i think it was...but ya i would replace all the hardware when you do it
