Hi all, haven't been on in too long since I've been busy, but I my girlfriend got me a Rough Country leveling kit as a present recently. I decided to try and put it in one day after work, and everything was going great till I tried to loosen the upper ball joint, specifically the ball joint nut. It's stuck on there pretty good. The directions say to just remove it with a socket/wrench, however, when I turn it all it does is turn the whole ball joint shaft. Any good ways to get it off?

yup put a pry bar inbetween the controll arm and u have to put a little pressure on the ball joint to prevent it from spinning with the nut

so basically I should put the pry bar in there and push so the upper control arm is pushing down onto the nut?
