    This Pic is looking at the knuckle on a D60 Bottom. I pulled the upper spring cap off and the bushing, spring and kingpin look good, but in the name of never having to deal with the dreaded Death wobble, I decided to rebuild the upper and lower. Good idea right, Wrong. I got to the 4th bolt and snap goes the head. The question is, This plate should come straight off, right? I was planning to pull it off then weld a lugnut to the remaining bolt, then extract it, but the damn Plate won't budge. Is there something that I'm overlooking here? I'm stumped.

    no it just pops in there and hold the bearing. no keepers. take drill and remove some of the bolt and it should come off. then heat it and grip it with vise grips and remove it. or take nut and set over it then weld it to the bolt. and remove it.

    looks as though you have tried a chisle i say give it a fairly good whack right above the broken bolt with a hammer looks to be rusted in there

    remove the kingpin itself first.. then you can remove the knuckle...and beat out that cap

    had to sharpen up a chisel and use my air hammer to get it to seperate, but it's better now. Been soaking the bolt in PB Blaster. We'll see what a little heat will do later :D
