    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    Yeah I was able to file down the mushroom and get the axle hub/knuckle off. It's the CV axle that's now stuck in the front diff. Here's what the axle looks like:

    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    That might be what I'd have to do. I used a 200lb sliding hammer (me) and pulled it all I have and it didn't budge.

    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    Filed the mushroomed axle and got the hub/knuckle off. Next fight is to get the CV off from the diff side. A few screw driver and hammer didn't prove useful.

    DO you have the front wheel hub (bearing carrier)? How much with shipping to Madison WI 53719?

    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    You can say that again! This outer edge of the axle is mushroomed so the axle can't pass through the needle bearing in the back of the spindle. Looks like I need to fire up my trusty grinder!

    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    While the hub is at the machine shop getting a thread insert, I started pulling out the busted knuckle assembly from the truck. The nuts holding bearings weren't willing to budge so I had to use my impact gun on them. The spindle threads are definitely kaput. Once the nuts came off the claw...

    Need help deciding on if I should buy my first LX470; any advice really appreciated.

    @PADDO is generally considered our resident expert on AHC - tagging him/her in hopes that he/she will chime in. I had to pull AHC from my truck because I had only 6 gradations difference. It can be reliable if it has been maintained and if the rust doesn't kill the shocks or hydraulic lines.

    Need help deciding on if I should buy my first LX470; any advice really appreciated.

    8 marks between low and high is disappointing. If you end up with the truck you can flush the AHC fluid and see if it gets any better but I seriously doubt it. Conversion to LC can be done for about $1000 if you are willing to get your hands dirty otherwise it will be about $2k job.

    Need help deciding on if I should buy my first LX470; any advice really appreciated.

    That seems to be the going rate for clean, well-maintained example. Check for rust (I imagine a non-issue is an AZ truck). I would still set aside another $2k for suspension work and other eventualities that are part of 20 year old truck ownership reality.

    A Harrowing Tale of Incompetence - How I destroyed a steering knuckle

    Cleaned up the hub and got all surfaces prepped for installation. Started putting on the new rotor and stripped one of the bolts :bang: Tried a theeading tool to rethread the hole but unfortunately it is too large. What are my options here? A helicoil insert or can I used a grade 10 through...
