the stud has a hex on the ned that is 5/16 i think. the nut is 18mm. you hold the nut and turn the stud until it is off and the link falls off.

The aftermarket part that I bought is thay way however, the factory part that needs replaced is smooth with notchs on either side. I think I need a tool that looks like a tuning fork.
Your local Napa Auto Parts store If they don't have it they can order and have it by 8AM the next morning
I went there today and the only thing we could find is called a tie rod end puller it may work but I think I am going to use a tool that looks similar to a tuning fork.
