Re: Steering arm removal
hey tim, were talkin' strait axle here, steering arm is on the drivers knuckle.
now to the question. i have had a couple come off easy, but several i had to torch off. under the nuts are tapered sleeves, that are a PITA to remove.
what i can say to start you off, i soak the nuts, etc with pb blaster or your favorite rust buster overnite, next day take the nuts loose (not off yet, you got hammering to do, so don't kill the threads) and if your lucky, the sleeves will pop loose and the arm will come off. in a not so perfect world, you'll be hammering for quite a while.
good luck, may the force be with you
