It's not that hard to get it off, I turned the steering wheel to get to the nut(there are two diffferent size nuts) but I used a small pipe wrench and turned the nut. The pin is a break away pin, as there was no way to get mine out. Auto Zone has a tool (it's call a 2 in one inner tie rod too, l you can rent this tool for about 35, I rented this tool but I found it was just as easy to do it with a small pipe wrench and channel lock pliers. I rented this tool to install the inner tie rod, I could not use this tool to remove the old tie rod as it was bent, and there was no way to get the tool over the tie rod unless you cut it.
