Currently working on replacing all my tie rod ends, and didn’t realize this didn’t come out or it wasn’t a bolt that went through. How can I get it out?

Well I need to reuse it and don’t want to destroy it. On the new one it doesn’t look like it’s threaded.the bolt has a tapered end, i think i use a ball joint puller or pound it out with a hammer...
its not threaded, just a tapered fitting.Well I need to reuse it and don’t want to destroy it. On the new one it doesn’t look like it’s threaded.

Welp... but the wrong nut on there and f***ed the threads... So now I'm really screwed lol. Live and learn I guess.It’s not threaded there it has a shoulder. Use a brass hammer and knock it out or you could put a nut on the end and pound that.
Couldn't agree more!3 replies in a minute this site is the best!
No I wasn’t able to break it loose. Tried spraying it with WD40 and nothingYou can clean threads up with a die! Maybe I have in the past on smaller stuff never anything that big. Did you get it loose?
That should be part of the steering damper kit.. Just heat up the tie rod end and pound the pin out from one end with a nut installed..Can you just buy that one piece here?

Absolutely not.& use some anti seize when pressing it into the new TREnd.
A little anti sieze on the tapered pin that the steering stabilizer mount interference fits to the TRE is fine.Absolutely not.
Big Nasty i believe it is calledNut to protect the threads and an Astro .498 shank air hammer.
Probably the route I’m going to take. How do you guys think I can save the threads? Since I used the wrong bolt on it when hammering… 😅Hi OP, I just had the same problem with a TRE nub on the control arm. I broke 2 joint separators, tried 3 jaw puller, sledge hammering, mapp, welding for heat over about two weeks time, and I have all kinds of fluids in my garage...What worked was the 30 ton press at the machine shop for 20$ and 5 minutes.
I would get a correct sized die and run down the threads, making damn sure I was going on straight so I catch the correct threads when I get there.Probably the route I’m going to take. How do you guys think I can save the threads? Since I used the wrong bolt on it when hammering… 😅
