track rod ends generally not all are tapered locked in to the casting you hit the casting it goes through side on
put the nut on the thread a bit so if you slip or miss hit you dont bugger the thread up
note: you will never hit a tapered thread out straight as you have been you will stuff the thread up first.
got it done first swing popped right out. Cheers for the help only prob was my earlyer attempt wackin it upwards fucked the thread but the local garage sorted that for a fiver and are goin to straighten the wheels and sort the tracking
its goin to be a lot easyer next time
one more does anyone know what the pipe goin in to the gaitor is for?
