Even a brand new tie rod end can spin in its socket if it's not tight in the taper and the threads are a bit distorted or dirty.|

Tie Rods = one time use?
I removed the centerlink from my C-10. I went to reinstall it and when I tighten the nuts on the tie rod, the stud just spins. I assume they were designed this way so that they must be replaced after you remove the nut? Is there any shame in just replacing the inner tie rod, or should I get inner, outer, and adjustment sleeve?
