You do not need to dissconnect the tie rod end to install a spacer..

Once jeep is jacked up:

remove lower shock mounts
Remove sway bar links
Drop axle to ground
Get spring compressor remove spring
Remove bolt to bump stop
grease shaft of bump stop
slap the new spacer in and your done.

that's the basic quick version.

4Jeepn is right but in case you need to remove a tie rod or ball joint this is the tool called a pickle fork

If you drop the shocks and at least one of the sway bar links you shouldn't need a spring compressor to get the spring out. Should come right out.

Be warned, pickle fork can be a very destructive tool and i would use it if NOTHING else works.

but i dont see the reason to disco the tie rod
