  • separating steering knuckles from arms - advice?

    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to get the knuckle arms off of my steering knuckles, and, like everything else I've touched so far, they are rusted in. Any advice on getting these loose?

    Some heat. I recently liberated some of these from some truck spindles. Even tho I WAS using heat - lots of it! - I just about gave up before they relented and came apart.[}]

      Well, I heated 'em up good and hot and still no joy. I think I'll just clean up the assembly, put on new nuts and cotter pins, and call it even.

        Good idea. I took one look at mine when I had the suspension apart and left well enough alone. They'll clean up fine.
