Well, after putting it off for a couple years I finally got around to rebuilding my knuckles. I'm a Florida boy but my truck is from the north, it seems like every damn nut and bolt is rusted. I've got everything dissassembled to the axle housing, just need to clean up all the parts and put it back together with new seals and bearings. It came apart without to much hassle, except the cone washers on the top of the knuckles on both sides. Funny how everyone says that the cone washers that hold the free wheel hub on are the toughest, not in my case. What a royal pain in the ass those were, luckily my neighbor is a heavy equipment mechanic, he came over and helped me beat, pry, beat, wedge, beat, jar and beat them loose, only broke one hand sledge. **** those things. He said that those were the most stubborn fasteners he has ever seen, and he has worked on everything from oil rigs to bulldozers. Looking forward to putting everything back together and getting the cruiser back on the road, with a liberal coating of anti-seize on the $@&*# cone washers.
