Threaded Steering Knuckle | HELP

Recommended Posts

larrymillar

Noticed a big difference in the feel of the brake pedal yesterday so I put the car up and took the wheels off to have a look..

 

The front off-side calliper was loose!! I found that the top slide pin was no longer holding the calliper onto the steering knuckle.

Turns out the threads have been stripped and the slide pins were not it great condition either!

 

Can anyone suggest any safe ways of repairing the existing steering knuckle?

Could I repair the threads and replace the slide pins? Need help with this asap.

 

I will buy a replacement part next month but I daily my car for work etc. and need a quick, safe temporary fix until then :(
