Default Can't get tie rod lock nut loose

Anyone have any idea how I could get my pass side tie rod lock nut loose? and if I'm looking at the nut from the rotor side I would turn it clockwise correct?

I ended up having to replace the inner tie rod to get mine loose. I took it in for alignment and the alignment shop couldn't get it loose either. You should be able to look at the threads to see. I don't remember either side being reverse threaded.

I always add some anti sieze on those threads. I do my own alignments and realized that this is the key!
