Can anyone tell me how to remove the upper and lower ball joints from the hub? I'm trying to change my front bearings but am having difficulty removing th ball joints I've tried whooping them out with a hammer and a 2x4 and had no luck any help would be greatly appreciated
I use a 3 lb sledge straight to the knuckle. After about 5-10 SOLID hit it falls apart. Just make sure you leave the nut loose on the bottom threads of the ball joint incase you miss, so you don't knick the threads.
We have ball joint presses (even the Honda press) they don't work NEARLY as good as a big hammer.. Just hit where the arrow is pointed in the picture (same idea on the bottom joint only you hit the A-arm)
