There is technically a special tool to remove the tie rod from the knuckles. But since I am replacing them I usualy just use a hammer... But kills the threads.

That then damages the threads on the nut and can't get it off the tie rod ends threads... I have done it both ways :-).

But yes damages the part being removed so if your replacing the end link that's good. If you are planing on reusing it then need to take a bit more care.
