Chris, what castle nuts are you trying to remove? Kingpins?
If your plan is to remove the front suspension on a car you're going to crush,
you remove the whole cross member.
My second thought is, if the cotter pins are that rusted, the nut will be next
to remove without some heat. If you have to heat it to remove it, the pins
won't make any
difference. Heat it up and twist. Be aware that the threads may get destroyed
