Inner tie rod ends/links

So after I installed my 2" leveling kit, I took it to have it aligned. When I did, they said that my inner tie rod end links were worn so they couldn't align it. So I call up oreillys and ordered some. When I look at there website and try to find which ones I ordered, the pic shows what I thought to be the outers....even though the description says inner. I am not knowledgeable at all about suspension/steering parts so I am just not sure. When I do a google search, I get tons a various looking parts. Anybody kind enough to post a pic of the inner tie rod end links so I can make sure I am getting/replacing the right part? I am assuming the outer ends connect directly to the lower control arm and the inner ends are on the other side of the tie rod. How hard are the inners to replace? I was able to install the levelling kit and sway bar end links myself. Thanks for any info and advice! (info on my ram should be in my sig)

Ok.....that is what I thought. I believe these are what the guy ordered. It says it is an inner but to me looks like an inner.

Shoot.....that is what I thought. Hope the pic is wrong on their website then. Thanks buddy! Changing it seems pretty straight forward to me but how hard are they to change?

Garage
Outers are simple loosen jam nut,remove spindle nut , split tie rod from knuckle (few smacks to knuckle where stud goes thru works fine), then count turns off, reverse process

Inner start with outer directions then remove jam nut, remove outer boot clamp, remove inner boot clamp, remove boot carefully, loosen inner tie rod with inner tie rod tool or a pipe wrench will do, install new inner with locktite on threads fairly tight then reverse process

It's easy to say but doing it another story have fun
