Re: [DML] ?? Separating Tie rod end from steering knuckle, HOW?

This will tear up the boots - generic urethane replacements are 
available just about anywhere, but I agree that if the car has many 
miles on it just replace the whole tie rod end. 

Another route on this is to unscrew the locknut on the tie rod end and 
just back the tie rod out of the end. You need to mark and measure 
everything, count the exposed threads etc or you'll be visiting the 
front-end-alignment guy when you are done.
