Tie rods

Looks as if the passenger side inner tie rod is shot. I got grease all over the boot. Do you need the special tool to remove the inner tie rod?

A bad inner tie rod would not make it leak The rack is leaking.
I have not replaced an inner tie rod on a Traverse but it does require an inner tie rod tool. You can rent one from a parts store.
