You may want to check out this link: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...%3Den%26sa%3DG I would also consider getting a repair manual so you can see how the inner tie rod is suppose to be removed. Sorry, I could not be of more help. Good Luck!

had that problem in the past alot! might need to replace tie rod end as well! is bushing worn on center bushings? they can be replaced by themselves.dealer sells just bushings,but the install tool is hard to find.
