Angry tie rod ends

I have a 85 chevy van G10 trying to replace the outer tie rod ends but having trouble getting the end out of the steering knuckle. The nut came off ok and the top of the rod end I took a hammer and knocked it off but the rod end shaft is stuck in the hole and won't come out. any suggestions? thanks in advance.

Use a tie rod end fork tool or hit it harder with the hammer.

Red face tie rod ends

to chevy driven:
thanks . I used a clamp plier on the top and wacked the plier with a sledge hammer. thought I would break the knuckle, but the tie rod end popped right off.
