Outer Tie Rod Replacement Question

I plan to replace my outer tie rods on my 02 2.7 this weekend. I’m getting tools, parts, etc. together and from what I’ve researched, the tie rod ball joint nut is 19mm. I can’t seem to get my box or open end metric wrench to fit. Neither does my 19mm socket. I think it’s due to the recess around the nut. Is there a specialized wrench required? I haven’t heard anyone mention this, so maybe it’s just my tool sets that are making this an issue?
