Re: YJ D30 knuckle removal
Give it a couple hard smacks with a hammer (3-5 pound hammer is best, a little 16oz hammer ain't gonna do squat) on the axle yoke near where the lower ball joint goes through. Sounds funny but it does help sometimes. Hit the lower ear of the yoke on both sides, then try knocking the knuckle off again. These parts are pretty tough, don't be afraid to really smack 'em. You can also try to wedge between the knuckle and the yoke. Sometimes these things are buggers to get off. You just have to work it for a while and it'll come eventually, usually right onto your unsuspecting toes if you haven't left one of the nuts threaded on loosely.
