Cleaning Rusty Spindles

I'm collecting the parts needed to do a WJ steering conversion on my ZJ. I have a pair of WJ spindles from a 2002 that are pretty corroded. The ball joint holes are clean and I could clean up the rest with a power wire brush, but would like to soak it in ??????? to clean them up. I've heard that if a rusty piece of steel is put in a pan of coke, it will come out clean, but have never tried it. DOes anyone know of a solution that will clean them down to bare metal?

They said it only works to remove rust stains from glass or toilet bowls etc.

Thanks anyway.

Good idea. I never thought of that. My son has a good sand blaster at his business. That will work!

Thanks

Sandblasting them is definitely the way to go.
