^^ Timing Belt First there buddy.

Let us know when you are ready to do that. It's fun and challenging to change the Timing Belt on an SVT.

i was going to be getting my parts from Hilbish. What else should I replace while doing this? since i am there and all.. lol Waterpump? Thermostat? I know tensioners, but what else?

And I will definately let y'all know.

-Daniel

PS. How hard is it to change my Tie-rods? Would that be easier just to pay my mechanic for that?

Idler Pulley, Tensioner and water pump as well.

Paul has a tool ... and that would make it 100 times easier. You need it.

inner tie rod is a bitch, but it can be removed. i removed mine and also David. it twists off but you'll need a large set of vice grips and man grip to twist it off.
