Anti-seize on re-assembly

Before I reassemble a tapered joint (tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.) I always coat them with a little anti-seize. Then when they need to be taken apart again, I don't need a puller or pickle fork. Just loosen the nut, support it a little from behind, then a good rap with a hammer -- works every time.
