I was reinstalling everything after changing my u joints and went to put my tie rod back on knuckle side. I was tightening the nut up and the tie rod end spun also. Does that mean my tie rod ends are bad?
No not really. A lot of times the threads get junk in them and the end will spin when putting the nut back on a used one.
I usually just push the end into the spindle while tightening the nut. An impact gun really helps here to get the nut run down without the end spinning.
