Default Help! Tie rod end install

Hi All,

For my '31 front end, I bought brand new tie rod ends and internals from Snyders, I have the parts in the correct order (spring, cup, then inserted into the tie rod body). How the heck are you supposed to get this to slid over the ball of the steering arm? I think the old springs must have been weak, because I don't remember fighting with them to get them off the steering arms.

I have everything well lubed, tried a couple of blows with a rubber mallet, but those darn spring have some serious resistance to them.

Please help with suggestions.

Thank You
