Uhh, well if the threads on the nut are messed-up, aren't the threads on the stud that it goes on going to be messed-up too? You may just have to buy a new outer tie rod. They aren't all that expensive - about $30-$40 bucks.

Oh ... I see ... well, actually ... I don't see.

In fact, never seen all that on same nut?

It didn't mess up the threads on the tie rod end ball joint stud too?
