    is it the inner tie rod? you need a special tool to change those IIRC

    I'll assume you're working on the outer tie rod. What part are you stuck on?

    id assume it wont come off the hub. usually the problem most people have.


    just go to auto zone or orielly's, and rent the tool. you get your cash back once you return it.

    Like they said, we need to know exactly which one you are working on to help fully.

    That tool rental program is a good idea though.
