PB Blaster and a breaker bar. Or impact.

do you have to have truck jacked up to loosen castle nut?

If you dont have an impact, try adding grease to the tie rod....if that doesnt help, heat the castle nut and drive a pickle fork in between the tierod and then try and brake the nut loose...It needs some pressure to keep the stud from turning
