    I had a question about the cone washers. Are they just pushed on or are they somehow screwed on. I need to remove my drog drag link for a perferred Raised steering arm to help improve my turning radious and steering play. Any suggestions.

    They are just slid on over the studs. Read back 4-5 pages in the garage or do a quick search there was just a good post about removing the arm.

    Hit the arm with a big hammer to loosen the cones. You can use some channel locks/vice grips/pliers to maybe thread them off after they are loose. Otherwise, hit it more with the BFH.

    i used the back of an axe - essentially a sledge. wasn't too bad. they do make cone washer pliers which can be helpful. one of the three cones on my arm wouldn't just pull straight off and i did have to twist it as i brought it up off of the stud, so the pliers came in real handy.
