Steering shaft removal

Ok I know I have done this before but I have no idea how I did it. I have covered both knuckles and shaft ends with PB but the thing wont budge. Any ideas in how to get good leverage on it?

Do you have the box off and the bolts all the way out (not just lose)?


If so it comes apart with force.

Bolts are just lose. So all the way out they will go. I dont plan on pulling the box. i am just replacing the standard shaft with straighter one so I get clearance with my headers.

make sure you take the bolts out of the knuckle joints ..spray it up good and try tapping the ends with a hammer to shock the splines if they don't move tap a small chisel in the split of the knuckle to relive the grip on the splines and compress each end you should be able to get it out without taking the box out

X2. You have to take the bolts all the way out as they sit in a groove in the shaft.

Gracias. I was about to get out the cutoff wheel and the torch. Always easier once you know what you are supposed to do.
