the haynes manual says you have to remove the steering knuckle and axle as one piece and get them hydraulically seperated and re-pressed together. Ive heard differentely, its a 92 loyale, whats the real story?

remove the roll pin on the inner end of the axle with a 3/16" drift punch. then pull the axle away from the tranny by eaither separating the ball joint with a fork, removing theball joint fom its pinch bolt, or by disconnecting the lower control arm.

once that is done you can whack the end of the axle with a hammer and pound it out. be careful of the threads, iu use the round end of a ball peene hammer against the dimple on the end of the axle, and hit the ball peene with a 3 lb hammer

to put the axle back on put it on the tranny end, slip the spindle end into the knickle and tap around the knuckel enough tull you can get the nut on, use the nut to draw the axle thru, tnen remove the nut, install the washers and then the nut
