[DML] Tie Rod is off ....



Thanks for all for the input.  Here is how it went...

I had been hitting it pretty hard before the post with the lower arm
supported by a block of wood.  I put the nylock back on and used it to save
the thread.

So after the readings, I decided to hit it some more and a bit harder.
After a while it did come off.  Then when I tried to remove the nut it spun
the stud.  I put some weight on the joint to hold it secure in the steering
arm and kept it from spinning.  Seemed ridicules that I had worked so hard
to get it released only to need to tighten it up to get the nut off.

I'd put new ones on now but the wife is a little irritated about the
"mystery boxes" that keep showing up.  I'll save that for later.

Thanks to all again.  And I like the idea of the tool mentioned by Rob
Grady.
