the tie rod thing happens. have someone hold the tie rod to the knuckle as hard as possible w/ channel locks, and use an impact gun, and keep hitting the trigger a bunch of times. that will usually work, little lube wouldn't hurt. or try any way of putting pressure on it to get that taper fit tight to hold it from spinning. pry bar, or floor jack if it pushes in from bottom. good luck

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
