To keep the tie rod end from spinning, lower the car until you can reach it with a jack. Put the jack under the tie rod end and raise it just enough to stop it from spinning. Use a 17mm socket to remove the nut. CLEAN the nut so that the socket will fully engage the flats before you go any further. Use a 6-point socket if you have one.
