Balljoint / Spindles separation??

989 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  W.Watts
I'm in the process of putting lift spindles on my truck, and I can't get the balljoints separated from the stock spindles. I've got a "picklefork" type balljoint separator as indicated in the Haynes repair manual, but can't get them to budge. Is there a trick to this??

When I dropped mine from the framerail, the angle must be easier on them, or something, because then it just slipped out, no banging.
You really have to beat the shit out of them. When you think you're hitting hard enough, hit harder! Its a pain in the ass for sure. Just keep going at it and change your angle every now and then.
