Hello Volks,

I know this isn't really diesel specific, but I seem to have loose/worn tie-rods and a bad wheel bearing on my 85 Mk2 Jetta (diesel).

I have the Bentley manual as a reference.  Anything specific I should look out for?

I was thinking of buying the parts from PartsPlace Inc as they sell complete bearing assemblies so I won't need a press to deal with the bearings.

The local Les Schwab wants $600+ which will only get me one bearing and the tie rods done.  I can get all the parts for about $400 to do both bearings/tie rods.
