[DML] Re: tie rod end removal



Josh

First, I assume you are talking about the outer Tie rod ends.  Have you removed them from 
the Steering arms yet?  If not, the subject of there removal was covered in several postings 
about a week ago. Go back and check them out. As far as loosening the jam nut goes, I've 
seen some pretty rusty looking tie rod components where you would have thought that the 
nut was surely frozen to the threaded shaft, but cracked loose easily. Once loose the tie 
rod end usually unscrews with your fingers. Remember they are right hand thread. If you 
happen to have the correct size line wrench it will have a stronger and tighter fit around 
the nut so you can put a lot of force on it without damaging the nut. Surely your not a real 
weakling:-)
