that is how mechanics remove tierods.. on every car.. I have only meet 1 or 2 mechanics that actually have the puller for tie rod ends and actually use them.. now pitman arms are a different story.. same method as the tierod. but using the puller first to load pressure on it, then hitting it is the beat way..
some cars or trucks take more than 2 hits some take 1, some take 15+

what I like to do is ALWAYS put the nut on the bottom few threads first so that if the hammer slips or your aim isn't 100% you wont fubar the tierod end threads, and you'll hit the nut.. also with that trick you can wack the spindle a few times, then tap up on the nut (simmiler to the puller putting pressure on it)
