whoa there kiddies......bad man is 100% correct. you are talking about taking something off that is A)underneath the boot and 2)something you shouldn't be messing with.......
you want to take off that nut on the tie rod end and then take a hammer and smack the assembly that the tie rod end is sitting in (ie the spindle) give it some good whacks. this will knock the tie rod end out trust me. don't go banging on the tie rod assembly at all, no matter how much you want to......otherwise you will be having another thread entitled "tie rod replacement and you".....shortly followed by "where's the best place to get an alignment done in (insert your city here)" thread.......once the end(s) are off then simply slip the boot out and over. installation is the reverse of removal
