Default do inner tie rods wear like out tie rods

Ok, I am replacing some things on my truck like ball joints and stuff, but I was looking at parts, do I really need to replace the inner tie rods? It almost seems as if its only an extension for the tie rods that come from the rack and pinion.

So to speak, would replacing just my outer ends be fine, or would both be changed?

Thing is, inner and outers cost about 200 total.

New rack and pinion is 200 which comes with inners, and its all MOOG. Outers with a new rack and pinion is about 300. so I would save money by buying a new rack and pinion with inners and have a whole new rack.

inners wear just as much as outs, inners have an ball joint at the inboard side, so if theres play they replace them,
