Re: ok what do you do to get these axels off the wheel side (agent007)
car sitting on the ground.
remove the top nut on the strut.
remove the safety washer/capture cap.
next , you'll see a special nut with 2 slots. You need a special tool to torque it down, but you could run it down to take up the slack with a pair of needle-nosed pliers.
