does anybody on here have any tips or tricks to poppin ball joints?? Last weekend it tried installing my Bilstiens. Took off the wheel, moved the brake caliper, unbolted the sway bar link and steering link and the upper control arm, loosened the lower strut bolt. I went to pop the ball joint with a 5lb sledge.. wouldnt pop. Beat in the pickle fork.. still wouldnt pop! and had to put it ALLLL back together. Is there something im missing here or do i need to just beat the hell out of it to pop out!
Im gonna give it another shot this weekend. Hopefully ill have better luck
