So I'm replacing my tie rod ball joints, and I guess I put a little too much on the nut, and it is stripped. Won't back off either. The kit had a lock washer in it, which was not used in the oem application. I should have known to leave it off, but now there are not enough threads showing to insert the carter pin (because of the washer tickness). I'm thinking I'll just tack weld that nut on and be done with it. Opinions???
