Loosening the steering shaft is the best way otherwise you run the risk of snapping the glow plug off. Just be sure when unhooking the steering shaft you tie it off with seatbelt to prevent the steering wheel from turning and thus breaking the SIR coil otherwise know as the clock spring which for the trucks with steering wheel controls just the spring runs about $300.00.

I recently gave up on PB blaster and purchased a Reusable Refillable Multipurpose Aerosol Spray Bottle and use a 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid just have to be careful where you use it, lacquer thinner can be substituted.
