Hi

I needed a ball joint seperator, very easy to use then the tie-rod end came off in two parts. The rod part that comes off the rack and the knuckle bit that is bolted to the hub.

Hope this helps

WTF! :o

you most likey mangled the tapered hole in the spindle. I don't know what to tell you except stay the hell away from it with a drill bit! If the tapered stud on the tie rod end doesn't fit snugly into its mating hole in the spindle, you will have to replace your spindle. Nice going <_<

Yeah, I'd probably stay away from it with a drill...I just beat the tar out of mine until it come free. Note: there was a LOT of tar to beat out...I was exhausted. Good luck.
