By "tie rod wedge" I assume you are talking about what is commonly called a "pickle fork," due to its appearance.
There is another type of tie rod removal press, and it looks like a see-saw, with one end (a fork) going under the the ring in the sway bar, and the over (a center finger) the threaded stud, and the other end a threaded bolt that when tightened spreads that end apart, which causes the other end to come together, forcing the stud to be pressed against the sway bar ring.
Using that device, the link pops out, usually w/ a rife-shot type sound. You can help it by applying pressure w/ the press, then a little heat (not too hot) on the sway bar end or by hitting the ring of the sway bar smartly w/ a hammer.
In fact, some swear the best way to remove the link is to simply beat the crap out of the end of the sway bar (NOT the threaded stud) with the nut loosened and the stud pops loose immediately. I prefer to use the press! You never know, you might miss and really damage something w/ a big hammer.
