Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be more than happy to assist you.
Ffom what I can tell you are doing everything correctly. Most likely there is a high amount of corrosion between the inner and outer tie rod or someone used lock tight on it. You will need a blow torch to heat up the outer tie rod and then try to unscrew it off. See if this works and let me know if it does not.
Will propane get it hot enough?
It may be hot enough, but MAPP gas would work better.
noticed there's a groove on the bottom side of the tie rod end and sprayed liquid wrench along the grove as well. Even tried widening the groove with a chisel and still no luck even with the heat.
Now we're considering replacing the entire tie rod. We fear it's rusted so bad we won't get the new one on even of we can get this one off.
Would this be the next step
I just seems like we are missing something
Do you have the jam nut spun all the way back?
Just wanted to make sure the collar is slide back far as it will go.
yup the collar is loose and spins freely
The only other option will be to cut the tie rod end off and replace the Inner and outer tie rods. After you cut the tie rod end off off you will need a tool to get the inner tie rod off. Which places like autozone and O'Reilly's will rent to you and then you get all of your money back.
