Cutting and turning knuckles on a scout 44

What is the best way to cut and turn the knuckles on a scout II dana 44. Should I grind the welds out or torch the weld out. If we torch it out will the heat weaken the knuckle? What's your opinions. Thanks

grind, torch can be hard to control in that kind of situation.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Also, I have never been able to turn an inner knuckle once the weld was ground off. I have to knock the Cs off and then put them back on at the desired angle.

they're supposed to be a slight press fit. heating them before slapping them back on gives you a little time to work them.

That would be OK for no lift or a small lift where you use the stock style front drive shaft.

I've got a 4" lift in my CJ7 with the Scout dana 44 front works great.
