Put Power into Your Steering by Replacing Your Old Steering Knuckle

Do you feel some stiffness in your steering? Do you think that the wheels aren't aligned the same? Then this easy, step-by-step guide will teach you how to replace a steering knuckle in an easier way.

Difficulty level: Difficult

Tools checklist:

  • Floor jack
  • Jack stand
  • Impact wrench
  • Slip-joint pliers
  • Screwdriver
  • Jaw puller
  • Socket set
  • Hammer
  • New steering knuckle

Note: The type of suspension in this guide is a McPherson strut type.

Step 1: Park your car on a clean, level surface, and engage the parking brake.

Step 2: Loosen your front wheel's lug nuts, and jack the car until you can already remove the wheel and the tire.

Step 3: Place a jack stand underneath the car's solid frame close to where you are working.

Step 4: Remove the caliper from rotor, and then remove the mounting bracket. Don't let the caliper hang from the brake hose. Place it on a flat surface so it wouldn't hang from the brake hose. Remove the brake pads and slide the rotor off of the wheel hub.

Step 5: Use the screwdriver to remove the wheel hub from the axle.

Step 6: Remove the tie rod end that's attached to the steering knuckle, and the cotter pin at the bottom of the tie rod end. You can attach a jaw puller to pull the tie rod from the steering knuckle.

Step 7: Unbolt the steering knuckle from the strut assembly and from the ball joint below. By this time, the steering knuckle is completely detached.

Step 8: Attach the new steering knuckle and secure to the ball joint and strut assembly.

Step 9: Start placing the parts back until you have attached the caliper.

Step 10: Fit the wheel back into place, secure it with the lug nuts, and disengage the car's mount. Test the new steering knuckle by turning the wheel from left and right.

This entire process will take about 1 hour for an expert DIYer and 2 hours for a regular handyman.
