    I used a 3/4" drive breaker bar with 7 feet of 1.5" .120" wall DOM tubing on it /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I tried my 3/4" drive impact but it wouldn't budge them.

    When my buddy was takin his out, he used a big ass cheater bar on the end of the allen wrench, and The kingpings actually started cracking, and then finally stripped, the Allen wrench would just spin in there, So we took an old allen wrench welded it in there, then beat on it with a hammer, and it came out....

    I think if we woulda just used the hammer the first time we wouldnt of ruined the kingpins.

    I bolted my axle up to the truck first... Then used a big breaker bar and cheater pipe while my son beat on the knuckle right where the kingpin is.

    They both broke free with me falling on my ass cause I was pulling so hard. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    A long breaker bar with the right hex head socket tool... I did it with the housing empty so i could move it around. Face the housing so it will want to be pushing down onto the ground instead of lifting up off the ground, get it? Then have a buddy stand on the housing while you use your weight on a long ass breaker bar.

    [/ QUOTE ] Hey Ryan, kinda funny how I was the one who did yours for you. Did you slip off your truck and bump your head while you were putting your heads back on? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
