    Is the spindle the same thing as the steering knuckle?

    Yup not much to it. Remove wheel, take off caliber, remove rotor, loosen 4 bolts holding hub into spindles, remove hub, take off upper ARM and lower ARM bolts and reverse for install.

    You may need a ball joint separator or a 2-jaw gear puller to remove the upper ball joint. I prefer a 2 jaw gear puller..less potential for damage to the ball joint boot.

    Ya man. The shop wants to charge close to 1,000$ to do it. Screw that. I would rather do it myself and learn something ya know. Im sure with the thread you sent Ill do it in a day.
