Tightening Tie Rod Ends?


Jedi Trainee
This may be a stupid question, but will ask anyway: How do you hold the tie rod end from turning when fastening it to the steering arm. New tie rod ends, with castellated nuts I was able to put the nuts on and turn them until they met the nylon inserts, then the whole **** things begins to turn. Any hint or trick will help.
Thank you
Push the TRE end up harder so that the taper can stop the rotation.


Impact gun will do it to. Gotta do it in spurts. SLIGHT pressure from a jack will help.

Thank you everyone. Floor jack putting up pressure on Tie Rod End and was able to tighten right up with socket. Impact wrench not needed.
