I hate rust

Not only is it eating through my floorboards its making stuff stick together. Drivers rear wheel is rusted solid not even the sledge hammer is budging it. And of course the trackbars are seized solid. Those I think I will just cut off but the wheel is puzzling. It is an aluminum wheel. Any ideas before I oull the whole shaft?

I hate rust ugh.

As far as the aluminum rim is concerned....just beat on it from the back with a BFH. At least a 3LB sledge, anything smaller wont have enough omph to get it off. Then when you put it back on, put a lot of antisieze on the mating surface. Im from WI, ask me how I know. I thought I was going to have to cut the unit bearing off the rim on my wifes saab.

BTW put a board between the rim and the hammer if you are worried about marring the rim. I have never done that and I have never damaged a rim. Knock on wood. Aluminum and steel dont corrode well together.

Not real sure if its kosher....but I broke one free one time doing this.

Loosen all lugs on offending wheel, don't remove, just loosen a little. Then turn wheel back and forth. With any luck it will pop loose and then you can remove it. I might have also blocked it against a concrete wall, don't remember, but it was a pain. Keep at it, you will get it eventually.

Heat + sledge = win. Trackbar was seized solid. Out came the sawzall. No more track bar .new exaust sounds sweet too, deeprumble instead of the falling off/rattling sound. Now onto fixing the cancer around the floorpan.if it turns out I will do a thread
