    Double nut the studs or use a stud remover.

    Use a torch to heat up the knuckle at the slightest sign of binding up. Plus some penetrating oil.

    and some more penetrating oil...

    i've also had better luck with penetrating oil if you spray it on, then take a good sized wrench or something and tap on the studs/bolts pretty good. the vibration is supposed to allow the penetrating oil to penetrate the threads better.
