I had to replace rie rod end link (inside), and the whole part comes together. I'm not sure of the exact name or part #, but it the long part that pretty much does the steering, connecting both wheels.

Any idea what is the price for a job like this, part & instal?

I paid $500 cash but I just want to see how much would a job like this be somewhere at a dealer or any other shop.

Do you mean tie rod?

Call charllie and find out how much he would charge. He ussualy has one of, if not the best prices.

I don't know if it was tie rod, on the failed safety from the last owner it said it needs tie rod end link, later it turned out it's the inside end link. The whole "bar" comes together, you can't just replace end link. That's why I can't call to check the prices, I have no diea what it was:)

not sure but it could be the drag link, that might be what you are talking about, the tie-rod ends connects to it

If I could only find a diagram somewhere..

Yes tie-rod ends connect to this part, on both sides, and if you push it sideways both wheels will move.
