i tried replacing my clutch myself and didnt even get to take out my tranny....the ball joint bolt would NOT come out i used the right size torx bit and all....called ford and got the size. it was so rusted it just wouldnt budge and i screwed it up by trying too hard.

the other problem is the main axle bolt in the center of the tire is ruined by tryin to hit the center to force the axle out of the knuckle without poping the balljoiint... so is that center bolt (the main axle bolt) attached to the axle meaning i need a whole new axle on that side? around how much does that go for? anyone know how to get out the striped bolt at all?
