Soak that SOB in PB blaster for a while, and then use a pipe wrech to spin it a few revolutions forward and backward. Then, use a pickle fork or an air hammer to remove the tie rod end.

Count the threads before you start spinning it, so that its close for the drive to the alignment shop

You're gonna have to get a pickle fork, just hitting with a hammer isn't going to do any good.
