    I love this tie rod tool

    I picked this up on a whim at harbor freight and man is it really useful. Previously I had used a pickle fork and often just pounded on it with a sledgehammer, but this little tool convinces the tie rods to pop right off.

    Makes things much easier

    Having the right tool really makes a difference.

    We recently needed to change out some axle joints. Previously, we used a socket and big clamp to squeeze the joints out and back in, but due to uneven surfaces, it was a tedious chore. This time we splurged and bought a 12 Ton press at Harbor Freight, and the job went much quicker, easier, and better overall. We won't likely use that press much, but it doesn't take much space.
