    A way to get the nut off without grinding it? It's just spinning. Tried a tie rod fork, but didn't do anything

    Do those have the spot to put a Allen wrench in the end to keep from spinning?

    Found somewhere synergy said it's a 5/8-18 but the shank is 7/8-18? That sound right?

    So bolt is tightened to 85 ft pounds.. but bolt is too tall for coffee pin. Is that okay?

    Are you referring to the actual tie rod end? I just changed mine and I can't remember for sure, but I think they only get torqued to 55ish

    I meant 55. Don't know why I put 85. This is my current problem. Talked to synergy and said that Since I used the 7/8 bit it's at .875 and it needs to be around .9-.925 so the tie rod can seat more.

    was the taper sleeve a tight fit? if so, get a dremel grinding stone and grind just a little bit at a time until the taper sleeve fits in somewhat easily.

    when you grind remember to maintain the taper and don't grind all the way to the bottom of the knuckle hole you don't want a lot of side play on the TRE shaft - grind only the depth of the tapered sleeve

    you can set the depth of the grinding stone to go barely below the end of the taper. important to work slow and in at circle to keep the hole even the length of the taper
