Outer tie-rods should be the same, inners have a different listing for 09-10 SS. Steering racks are all the same even HHR.

Both steering racks are exactly the same I went over this a few days ago and John Powell backed me up on it. Both steering racks are the same, serviceable inner and outer tie rods. Every cobalt except the LNF's have the exact same steering ratio, this is because of the revised knuckle with a different connection point on the LNF. The ratio however is exactly the same in the steering rack itself.
