Ok well both my ball joint pinch bolt nuts were welded. The passenger side was more stuck (more salty puddles I suppose) The one I broke was a big pain to drill out, and I messed up the knuckle a little doing it but it didn't matter in the end because the shop pressing out my old bearing broke my knuckle and paid for a new (used) one. So the moral of the story is DON'T GIVE UP but BE CAREFUL!
