The steering knuckle is the irregularly shaped solid piece of steel behind the front wheel. If you take away the wheel, brake calliper, disc, tie rod end, strut, sway bar, control arm and drive axle what's left is the steering knuckle. The steering knuckle should contain a bearing or set of bearings that are usually pressed in at a machine shop or garage.
