Alright, I've got the old ball joint out. Braced the long end against the base of a basketball hoop, the steering joint against a spare wheel on the ground, I taped a big socket to the BJ and it came out pretty easily with a few hits with an 8 lb sledge (like I was splitting wood, whoever made that analogy). This was after heating it up and letting it cool three times. Now for the new one, I'm think of using the generic tool and removing the grease boot. Anyone have any good tips?
