If it is truly for your '95, it is better to post your questions in the 92-95 section. However, in this case, the procedure is basically the same. You have to loosen the jamb nut that presses against the outer tie rod to keep things in place. That is a lot easier to do before you remove the tie rod from the steering knuckle. A large wrench, will make the job easier, as the can be pretty tight. Either that, or hit the wrench with a hammer - but be careful if you use that method, that you don't injure yourself if you miss, or the wrench flies off. This is a link to the procedure.
