how do you get this nut off

Im working on getting the entire front end of my camaro stripped down so I can work on the frame. I am now trying to get the steering knuckle off and there are two bolts holding it on. The nuts on the bolts are notched and have a wire on the bolt that fits into the notches so the nut won't back off. So how the hell do I get this nut off? Do the wires come out with enough yanking?
thanks

straighten the wires out and give her a hard wiggle/tug, a pair of channel locks will give good leverage there.............

If all else fails, drill it out.
