Re: Steering Arm Removal ?!?! Help
they suck, hit the side fatherst away from the steering arm part that attaches to the drag link, the removal of the arm isnt easy, especailly the longer its been on ther, hit it side to side down, not up, that will only put more pressure on the cone washers (bad). you wanna hit side to side, with a 3Lb hammer, i used a air chisel to just try to vibrate the hell out of it, i just got pissed after about a hour of hitting it, got to the fridge ate some chips and sour cream and onion dip, got back to it a hour and a half later, i just kept hitting it, spraying it, hitting it, spraying it, etc. then the 2nd cone came out, then the 3rd, then i took the steering arm off and threw it as far as i could throw it, about 5 feet at that time because my arms hurt so bad from swinging that hammer, then reinstalled the new arm, useing existing cone washers. One tip i will share is to avoid hitting the backing plate or ball joint, i used two hammers, one hammer sittin on the arm, and the other to hit the hammer, gave a bigger area to hit while concentrateing the other one on the steering arm. good luck, yes they suck. just use alot of [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] and alot more [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img], and when your done give yourself a [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]. good luck.
