just smack the knuckle where the tie rod goes thru with a hammer. They will fall right out.

yup, I prefer to use 2 3lb or 5lb hammers. Just hit the big area where the rod end goes into on either side.

A 2 jaw puller wont get the pitman arm off. That will require a pitman arm puller if you feel you will mess up the steering box. And yes if you just beat it you can cause damage to it.

Use 2 hammers. Hold one on the back side of where the tie rod goes through. And hit the opposite side with a hammer. A 2-3lb hammer works best.
