The steering knuckles are removed by first removing the top and bottom nuts. Using a big hammer, rap against the axlehousing where the knuckle is, and the knuckle should drop away. Lots of penetrating oil may be needed depending on how stuck the joints are. Once the knuckle is removed, an adjusting sleeve is left in the top of the axlehousing, which unscrews with a special spanner wrench.
