HELP! Removing Factory Steering Stabilizer

Guys... Is there a special trick to removing this thing...???? I can't get the bolt off on the tie rod end!!! I'm trying to install dual steering stabilizer and I can't get this factory one off... I sprayed it with PB and beat on it with a hammer! Is it threaded in there and I'm just a tard?

Its pressed in there. Get a BFH, big ****** hammer and beat it out. If you have access to a pickle fork you can try that. They suck, but can be taken out with a larger sledge hammer.

Why didn't you leave it in and just add a dual?

What did you end up getting? I just finished installing a Bilstein 5100 in place of the stock unit.

Got dark on me before I could snap pics ... I'll get one in the morning ... I got the dual rough country kit with the bilistein shocks went together nicely, Instructions could have been a tad better but for the weekend warrior it wasn't bad, an extra set of hands was nice getting it lined up and tightened down

And I got rid of the oem one cuz I figured my steering box was already having a hard enough time turning my 37x13.5's , And then I added 2 more stabilizers ... I didn't see the need for 3 . Some guys leave 'em some take 'em out

Ya. I ended up leaving mine. 20k with the triple set up and she turns like butter. Where did you get your toyo's from? Looking to get the same ones but can't find em for less than $450 a tire delivered.
