SO, I got the passenger side out with a little persuasion, but the driver's side is having none of it. Am I missing something? It should just screw out with the tie rod tool. It's not corroded. I have now stripped the threads and don't see any way to remove it. I ordered a used rack with tie rods still on it so I'm not interested in salvaging it, but am perplexed as to why it won't come off. I beat the piss out of that thing.
