    It's a 77 K5 and how the hell do I get the original steering arm off?!?¿

    BFH! Seriously, just soak the washers with penetrant, get a sledge hammer and start swinging. Just try not to hit the studs.

    I know it sounds counterproductive, but smack straight down on the arm, near the bolts. When it comes loose the little cones will jump right up the studs. Be sure to leave those nuts loosely on the studs so you don't booger the threads with the hammer. [​IMG]
