from removing tie rods...i hate these f'n things. one lousy end is holding me up. i've beat the piss out of the pickle fork, i've coated it in pb blaster, i've put heat on it, i've pounded on the castle nut, i've pounded on the rod itself....f'n thing just isn't coming out. after i drink a beer, i'm going to put it on jackstands and pull the tire so i can get a better angle. f'n tie rod ends. :mad:

rant off

appropriately, the same end that was such a beeeatch to get out of the steering arm also doesn't want to come out of the rod. i've done the first round of heat and pb blaster, along with putting almost all of my weight on it. time for another beer.

Ige,
If you want to work on something else, I can come over tomorrow morning with the tre puller and make quick work of it for you. Out the door for a graduation party right now or would come over this afternoon.
