So i'm in the process of installing a lift kit and i tore the boot on the tie rod link that attaches to the pitman arm. I need to replace the tie rod, but it seems i stripped the top of the bolt where the 1/4" allen goes into. Im not able to remove the nut on the tie rod to replace it.. Ive tried using vise grips on the tie rod and they just slip when i turn the nut, ive also tried using a recipricating saw to saw off the tie rod but it just destroys the teeth on the blade
Does anyone have any other ideas on how i can get this damn tie rod off the pitman arm??
