    If all else fails, hit it with your purse.

    I just undid the bolt, and hit the knuckle "hard" from the front. Mine dropped right out.

    Quote of the day. 🤣

    I needed a good laugh.

    Really though, you have to hit it like it's something that you hate.

    One more thing, if it has a castle nut, don't use it to protect the threads if you decide to hit the bolt. It will ruin the nut and the threads.

    I wouldn’t hit it with my purse, I have too many valuables in there....

    That's why I wear a fanny pack. I can spin it around behind me so its out of the way. Plus I can place my tools in it so I'm not scouring the garage looking for them during a project...

    As everybody else said, drop your purse first, get the nut flush with the threaded part. Give it a couple of hard hits on both sides of the drag link eye with atleast a 3 lbs hammer (don't be afraid to hit it, you won't break it).

    Put your purse back on and then proceed with the rest of the install.

    Again. Just spin it around behind you and it's out of the way. Doesnt even have to be removed to get the pants off..haha.

    Edit: If it's full of change its going to make it sound like you hit the jackpot on a slot machine. Well back when they actually dispensed coins.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
