Default Tie Rod Removal

Working on some serious play in the steering on my 1983 XJ6. I need to remove the tir rods on either side. I have taken the nut off the top but I cannot get it to slide off. The manual calls for a special tool JD24. Is there any other way to do it? Thanks.

yes, use a tie rod puller and pull them off, they will not come off easily.

I have had good luck holding a heavy hammer on one side and smacking the snot out of the other side with another hammer. The tie rod bolt has a tapered fit and the blow will usually cause it to loosen. I say usually, not 100% of the time.
