Default Tie rod help

So I have a bent inner driver tie rod. Causing bad vibration and bad alignment. Bought a replacement. Just curious any special tools I'll need or if someone knows a good method.
Thanks

Alright guys replaced the bent one. Man what a pain in the A$$!!!! However just wanna let everyone know.....a pipe wrench works better than any tool I could find/conjure up. If I replaced the passenger side too. Def would be my tool of choice

yah when the old ones are rusty and havent been adjusted in forever a pipe wrench is neccesary( or a torch to heat them up, whith out burning anything of coarse) after new tie rod ends are on you can use a 14mm wrench on the part that u can put the wrench on to do toe adjustments
