just take a peice of wood and beat on that with a heavy hammer. Start on the top and move your way around it, hopefully the spindle will eventually come loose.

Yep, that's what I do, works every time. DO NOT try to pry it off with a screwdriver or chisel. A guy at the local junkyard did that to mine and I had to put them on the bench grinder to flatten the mounting surface, since that needs to mount flush.


It's a multi-purpose passenger vehicle and it eats SUVs for breakfast...get it straight!

I'd soak them from the back with Liquid Wrench then use a light hammer to tap on the flange where the studs stick thru. This should loosen the sand & rust between the spindle & knuckle. I've also used a slide hammer with a 3-jaw puller on a bearing nut./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Use a slide hammer with a spindle puller then you dont hahe to worry about ruining the threads or where the bearing rides
