pitman arm removal


Recommended Posts

So I'm putting in control arms and ball joints. But I can't get the pitman arm off the ball joint shaft. It looks like the shaft is slightly tapered so it's probably just wedged on there, right? The castellated nut came off. Is there a trick to getting off the pitman arm? I tried it with a pickle fork. No luck yet. Could it be rusted on there? Thanks.

you can rap the side of the joint with a hammer while prying down on the piece you want off - one good solid rap is often enough to separate the joint.
