Hey guys im having a really pain in the arse problem
i have to replace my tie rod ends, and no matter what i do i cant get the rods to dislodge from the steering knuckle:(
ive tried everything, hitting the side with a hammer to break it free, ive used a tie rod separator which broke, ive used a pitch fork, nothing works, since im getting new rod ends ive even tried smacking on the bolt to knock it out, it hasn't moved a mill :(
its so frustrating, you guys are my last glimpse of hope before i cut the rod off and drill the screw out :(

put a jack under the steering knuckle and then give the tie rod end a good hit with hammer, always comes off for me that way!

Did you have another hammer or something heavy on the other side when you hit the knuckle??

What's the difference between understeer and oversteer?
Understeer is when the driver is scared.
Oversteer is when the passenger is scared.
