Re: Having a ball with a joint....

     Yeah, had this headache wed night. After going about it the way 
     mentioned below, it was a breeze.
     However, chalk one screwdriver up to primative pete. Might try an 
     actual prybar next time.
     Found out that the bar/ 2x4 wasn't needed.
     Thanks for the help Scott.

<< e whole control arm anyhow) and off she comes.  So, tonight I gotta get 
 other one off.  Anyone with ideas/suggestions?  Yes, I removed the balljoint 
 bolt before I started any of this...  Any reason not to just start off with
 pickle fork & forget the pry-bar idea?

Yo, Mike.....  Todd Candey just went thru this exercise with the lesson 
being, buying craftsman crap for the "primative pete" stuff beats breaking 
the snap-ons....  Take mr. screwdriver and insert in the "split" where the 
ball joint goes into hub...  separate that split some, and voila, the pup 
just about falls out....  BTW, you don't need to do the swaybar removal for 
this procedure....   Get new ball joint bolts too, torque to spec....
