    I am wanting to put in a steering block. I have the block and new studs but I
    do not know how to get the old ones out. Any ides would be great. This a a 10
    bolt alxe out of a 78 blazer.

    You get the taper-locks out by pounding on the side of the arm. This causes the hole to flex and they should pop out. If you don't have a stud remover, install two nuts onto a stud and tighten (jam nut). Then turn the one on the bottom and they should come out.
