If you want to remove the steering tie rods from the steering box arms, insert a piece of metal between the tie rod end nut and the transmission case. Unscrew the nut so that it starts pressing against the metal and forcing the steering box arm out away from the trans. When you have a little tension on it, hit the steering box arm with a hammer just above the tie rod end. Usually one whack will pop it loose. The trick is getting the right thickness of metal between the transmission case and the nut so that the nut is still on the tie rod end threads and pushing on the metal to get some tension.
