Hi,

Bought an OTC tie rod puller from Amazon based on good reviews and better construction. It is made in Taiwan, NOT china. I am happy. However, just a caution in using it. It has two settings. Use the tight setting so that the tool will press the ball joint threaded rod evenly. If not, the pressing force can ruin the threads at the contact point. If it is very tight, don't keep tightening it. Use the hammer to hit the tool to initial an impact to overcome the static friction. Of course, if you are not reusing the tie rod, it is not a concern.
