    Just realized this post was about the 2nd gen not a 3rd gen. It's great that they mostly the same.

    Also, because the long bolt may be seized in the knuckle you may have to take the arms with it.

    That would be the easiest way, just remember to unhook the e-brake cables (you will need them).

    junkyards are best place to find these parts. I know that's already been stated
    There was just an EGT put into the yard here in Grand Rapids and I pulled the rear calipers as they were new, not even rusty, the cable is new, and the hardware was new as well. But then upon trying to remove the knuckle, I gave up because I learned its nearly impossible and it needs to be cut. So the new calipers were still sitting there, it also has a nice interior, and the engine ran (not well) when it went in.

    For the love of goodness, to all who read this. Yes, just take the whole rear crossmember. Really easy, I mean, tho bolts seem forever long, and will likely be pretty hard to turn, but other than that, a super easy snag from a JY. Trying to get just the spindles would require a shop and a lot of free time, and a really hot torch, Not even worth the effort LOL.

    ^^ What he said. Then you get the larger rear sway bar and it's bushings as well...
