I went to get an oil change last week, and the folks there told me I needed to get new ball joints. So I went home and took to youtube to learn about this, since I have never messed with them. Well, after all the videos, it seemed like something I could take care of. So I ordered all needed parts and rented a ball joint compression tool from O'Reillys. Well, the top was no issue but the bottom has proven to be a real bear. So I wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with doing this and have some advice for me.
2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 HEMI. The issue is that I am not able to separate the steering knuckle from the ball joint.
