Before removing the old assembly, adjust the new assembly to approximately the same length as the old one.
Pull cotter pins and remove the nuts.
Then it's really just a matter of pulling the old tierod/draglink from their attachments. Age and wear can make this difficult without a tool. The separator tool makes it pretty easy. The pickle fork method will usually be successful provided you have a good angle to beat the #%@* out of the fork with a hammer.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
Check your toe-in. It should be zero degrees. Search for the "string" method to DIY this.
