    **figured this out - man I feel stupid.....**

    I'm trying to install a steering bushing kit. I'm having a little problem with my tie-rod end. The instructions just say to unbolt it from the steering knuckle but the tie-rod end stud won't come out. My haynes manual says I need a 2-jaw puller.....I tried taping the stud out...no luck...didn't really want to hit it hard...I drive an '04 4x4

    any help's appreciated...

    no one? hehehe I just finished installing my coilovers (no documentation) and disconnecting my sway bar.....Installed my URD MAF calibrator myself with no instructions or wiring harness....thought these bushings would just slap on easy....

    contacted vendor and they said they didn't even think the tie-rod end had to be removed to slip in the new bushings...hehehe....amazing the amount of money you can spend on a quality product and the instructions are just ridiculous...I mean these are good parts....

    anyways...I'll get these things on..just thought SOMEONE would be able to tell me off top of their head....
