I need to know how to get the outer tirerode off. I am having a hard time getting it off. Is it ok to hit it with a hammer?

If your replacing it with a new one. You can use a pickle fork tool to remove it. OR if you don't have one handy BUT you have two large hammers here is another way. Take one large hammer and put it on one side of the tie rod socket. Now use the other hammer to give the opposite side of the socket a good hit. The sudden shock generally breaks them free quick. This also works with ball joints.
