Hey guys I went out all day today to try and get my tie rod to move. It wouldn't!
I removed the little clamps that you must loosen to twist it and I looked on the back where the little gap is, it was just rust, rust, rust. I tried for hours with lube, wire brush, and pipe pliers but it just wouldn't budge.
I figured the threads are rusted together and will not be moving... I might still try and move it, but I don't want to break it.
I noticed, trying to heat the rod at the ends??? I tried with a heatgun, I don't know if that's enough heat or not... Should I just buy new end brackets and bar??
Any suggestions? I don't want the 400$ currie system! It's just too much for my budget. (college) If something like a replacement?
If I went to a junkyard, what year wranglers/cherokees etc. should I look at..
