Can anyone help steer me in the right direction... I'm trying to get my steering stabilizer off, I need to keep all hardware intact to be able to reuse it... I can get the bolt closest to the tire off with ease but the other one, not so much, my new stabilizer should be here tomorrow so I wanna get a head start on it. Thanks in advanced yall!!!! :thumbsup:

ya i just used a 1/2 bit and drilled that one out the new one i got came with one. but the pitman puller would have been the easier way and costs about the same as the 1/2 bit

I didnt think about fancy tools like it what I did mine and I tried to replace...
I tried heating with torches, and caught the bushing on fire...

I just picked up a pitman arm puller at lunch and tried to pop out the old one... spent 30 minutes and it wouldnt budge any

Trick we used was tightin with impact gun, then when cant tighten, hit with large hammer

haha I was using a impact gun but didnt use a hammer... I'll try that.. If that dont work then I'll apply heat!!

when we did mine, it was literally one good hit from the hammer, and the thing surrendered.

shot! I wish mine was like that.. I've tried it all! the best thing I can do now is drill it out

Spray it with PB blaster and crank the puller down. Wait a few hours and spray it again. Then hammer on it. Mine flew out and smacked the oil pan like a bullet.
