What is the recommended procedure for removing the LCA ball joint stud from the spindle? I have successfully removed the Torx-head pinch bolt from the spindle. There is a stainless/aluminum sheet-metal shield over the LCA ball joint seal that prevents me from using a pickle fork. I put a 6' pipe over the LCA with one end under the subframe and me standing on the other (230lbs) and still no budge. The stud area has been marinated in loose-nut oil for two days. Maybe this topic should be in the suspension sub-forum. Mods are free to move this.
