Thanks a lot guys, not surprising who the two quickest responses came from.
Larry, how to you get the tie rod ends appart that are towards the center of the car? For example the opposite end from the spindle? I hate tie rods and the only thing I've found to work is the dreaded pickle fork. I am really nervous about bending good steering components.
csnow, I've tried a puller and ended up spreading the top of the tie rod end with no success in getting the joint appart. Those things get so wedged in, it' tough.
I am glad to be doing my own front end work though. Used to be a big mystery. Not anymore.
Thanks again guys,
Would much rather be in my gararge right now than work.
