Tie Rod Help.
#1311852 - 09/03/06 11:23 PM

IM attempting to take my wheel bearings out myself this weekend. So i got everything to the tie rod-end bolt removal.. Now i put the nut back on the bolt to get the tie rod loose by banging on the nut. I got it loose.. but now the nut just moves with the bolt in the tie rod end.. I cant even tighten it back up.. it just spins.. I NEED HELP.

the bottom of the bolt should be keyed for an allen wrench to stop the bolt from spinning so that the nut can spin ...
