    One of the 8 bolts that holds the front hub, spindle, etc. assembly broke off in the knuckle housing. Is there a way to get it out? I have a fj60 front axle that I was holding on to just in case I needed to switch knuckles, but I have a guy interested in the axle. I would love to have some longfields and need some money to do it! Thanks! :cheers:

    Short of drilling and re-tapping the hole, you're only option is a bolt extractor, my local hardware store had some. They will work sometimes, soak whats left with PB good, and you may want to try some heat.

    Bailey,
    This is why I was thinking of holding on to the knuckles on the 60 axle! I may take a chance and sell it anyway! Just need some of those longfields! Anybody else have a idea if this will work? Thanks!
