I can offer a suggestion on the tie rod removal.First try prying on the tie rod to put pressure on it and then try to loosen the nut at the same time.If that doesn't work then I use a cut-off wheel on a grinder and cut the darn nut/stud right off.
2 17mm wrenchs are needed to remove the inner and outer tie rod ends. If you look inbetween the mount and the rod end itself, it is notched to accept a wrench. no cutting or grinding is needed for anything.
on the stirring stem bearing. once you get the stem out and the old seals are popped out, you should be able to see the snap ring. a mid size set of interenal snap ring pliers are needed. They can be a pain sometimes with all the rust and mud built up in there. just drive the old bearing out, clean it out and install the new one. you can use a long bolt with washers to press the new bearing back in, its not to much room in there for a hammer
