    I have run into a needed change. Did an SOA and tried to use "pre-bent" steering arms. They won't work.
    Anyway I will be needing to remove the bent arms and reinstall the stock w/hy-steer. Is there anything that I need to do or watch not to damage anything within the knuckle when I remove and reinstall the other arms? Thought I would place a bottle jack under the knucle for support(?)
    (as I just resealed the whole front axle)
    On the tear down it was kind of a, "no holds barred" situation.

    just support the front axle on jackstands and remove the tire first. &nbsp:Don't touch the lower, just the upper. Not tough at all really.
