I'm not certain this is correct.  The pin does not protrude completely through the nut.  Therefore, hammering on it will only push it further in (it can't come out the other side).  

You need to drill the *head* of the pin out, and then use a magnet, or tap on the nut to pull it out.  The reason you need to drill the head is that it's been peened with a hammer (flattened).  

Good luck.

Starting on the outside you've got the tie rod ends, then the tie rod, then a large "nut" (for the lack of a better name) which connects the tie rod to the "steering drive bar".  This "nut" is located under the boot on each side.  How do you remove this nut?  There is a pin of some sort inserted into the "nut" in the center of the groove of each one.  They do not have a head on them for either a Phillips, Straight Slot, or Allen, so is this a tight fitting pin that needs to be drilled out or what?  Any help would be appreciated.
