fordem Shocking the taper free works - in fact if you use two smaller hammers and "clap" the casting from both sides simultaneously, it's very effective - but if you lack the experience, it's an easy way to damage parts.

JohnnyAirtime I've always just used a small sledge hammer, and beat on the pitman arm or casting where the tie-rod bolts through. A few good hard hits... and it'll drop right out. ...may not be "proper", but it works.

Pitchfork removal devices always ruins the boot (IME)

fordem Please - do not use a pickle fork on any part you plan on reusing - but as Joe has pointed out there are all sorts of tie-rod & ball joint release tools available on the market.

special tools with pics

There's all kind of tie rod removal tools and some are not expensive.....
I like the fork kind but be sure to get the right size..... If you where real careful you could support the piece bring the nut up flush to the top and tap it with a brass hammer or a block of hardwood up top..... but you stand the chance of ruining the threads if not careful
