I need to do this same operation on my '98Q and I found a pretty good 
deal at ECS (thanx to this list :).  They have a couple of packages 
(w/wo tie rod ends) for $529.95 & $599.95 that look pretty complete.  I 
need to call them and ask if there is anything else that is required 
(seals, nuts & bolts, washers, tools, etc.) to do this job start to 
finish.  I don't want to have my front end apart and then realize that I 
need some extra dealer only part.  :/

Anyway, if anyone has any feedback on these kits, or tips on doing this 
in your own garage, I would truly appreciate it.


BTW: Here's the links for those kits:
