Well my tires are wearing badly on the inside tread....so I bought new tires and went to get it aligned....but they told my my lower ball joints and inner tie rods are shot...so....should I replace with OEM?....how hard of a fix job is the lower ball joints and tie rod ends for me to do? Anyone with CLK experience????

Do I need the drag link on the CLK or can I just get tie rod ends? I saw them on Fastlane for $33 or so. And the ball joints I saw on Fastlane looked like they need to be pressed in....is that not so?
