I took my knuckles off and was going to take them to sage to have them figure out how to get these God Damn ball joints out but they closed before I could get down there.

I also bought w few more tools I didn't have so I could "finish" this Damn job already.
Now all my tune money is spent and I have to wait again. I still need to get aligned after all this is said and done too.

A few friends that work at dealers say they used to light stubborn ball joints on fire to get them out. give it a shot.

Thanks guys. I know about the torching but I live in military housing and I am not even supposed to be working on my car. Plus we have a crazy sensitive fire alarm that I don't even want to test out.

Just about everything I have done to the car has taken way longer than it should because of the rust. I am from California and have never really dealt with rust, even on my 68 camaro I had.

Test fit the new auto-x setup - 245/40s on 17x8.5" +44 CE28s - and worked a bit on the half-assed DIY fender rolling I had done a while back. I have a feeling I'm going to shred the rear tires next Sunday.







But at least they look cool!

Oh, and also managed to disappear my primary set of car keys as I was getting stuff ready to go do the above test fit. I think I must have put them down somewhere in the garage, in which case it could be a while before they resurface!

I tried everything I could. I even had a pickle fork on it with a 5 1/2 foot pipe on the end. I bent it both ways so in the pic it doesn't look as bad.
I bent the fork and shaft along with the pipe. It's insane how stuck it is. To bend a pickle fork like that takes some torque my friend.
