    whack them with a punch similar size to the screw head that should loosen them if done enough

    I presume you know they are onto tab washers? Need to push the tabs flat.

    Sorry Mate, didnt realise but get the idea now, just never seen these before on normal nuts, Must be a Series thing.
    So do these tabs bend back, thought they were part of the bloody nut :oops:

    Bend them down with a chisel and undo the nuts. New tab washers when refitting, bend the tabs up.

    top is a bush, bottom has the bearing
    very early axles had a top steering arm with a changeable pin as it sat in a bush ,yours like most has bottom steering arm and you replace the bush and pin

    it looks like you need the full kit , in ay case rerplacing the bush and not bottom bearing wouldnt be good practice
