Ive tried everything to get this fucking thing out. I need to replace both shafts because they are both fucked, and I have to do brakes. I cant get the lower ball joint out on the driver side (let alone the stupid axle nut on the passenger side) so I can get the godamn axle out.
Ive tried a hammer on the bottom of the joint (3 guys), tried using a 2 jaw puller but we bent the turning thing because the joint doesnt move (2 guys) and I tried using a pickel fork against my own discretion because I didnt want to break open the ball joint boot. So I greased the fork before I put it in use so I wouldnt wreck the boot. Got the fork in there about half way, and Im beating the shit out of the end with a hammer and it doesnt go any further. I pull the fork out because its a useless piece of metal to find that the dark green grease is pushed back and there was some black grease on there so Im assuming the boot is fucked now.
What the hell else can we try? We tried using the pickel fork beside the ball joint to jam it in there and get some leverage, just ended up bending the fork. We tried a pry bar and a jack as the leverage, but that only raise the suspension up.
So I have less than 24 hours for this car to be back on the road and it cant be driven with the shafts like this, its way too bad and ive been driving it too long like this.
