PROBLEM CHANGING TIE RODS

1985 Porsche 911

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1985 Porsche 911 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 73000 miles

I have a 1985 Porsche 911 and I need to replace the outer tie rod ends. I can not get the old outer tie rod out no matter what I do. I have tried using a pickle fork, countless hammers, spray etc. But it wont budge. It just doesn't seem like it was meant to come out. Has anyone ever had this problem and is there something that Porsche does that is different than other cars?

Thanks

Hammer pickle fork in good and tight then smite the spindle where tierod is attached should drop out.
