Re: What will i need to remove knuckle

I can't tell you all you'll need for taking everything else off, but for taking the knuckle off, I'd recommend 2 decent sized hammer. Put one on the knuckle where the stud goes through, and then hit that with the other hammer. Make sense?

Re: What will i need to remove knuckle

I'll give it the best shot my memory will allow.

13/16" for wheel lugs if they are still there.
screwdriver for hub cover if it doesn't have lockouts.
allen wrenches and snapring pliers if it does have lockouts.
allen wrench for brakes, don't remember what size but if you use a folding set you should have it.
four prong hub nut socket for the bearing nuts.
9/16" socket for the spindle nuts.
block of wood, large hammer and screwdriver to remove the spindle. good luck.
pull axle shafts.
1-1/8" wrench or socket (I think - it's close) to remove the lower and upper ball joint nuts.
3/4" wrench (I think - it's close) to remove steering joints.
hammer and LARGE hammer as previously mentioned to hit smaller hammer with to knock knuckle down to unseat the ball joint tapers.

That's all I can think of right now.
