Re: 99 Crown Vic, Can't separate lower balljoint from steering knuckle
Hey Mikesw, I literally just had to do this yesterday, my harmonic balancer went out in the morning(i know a good trick to get the bolt unstuck if anyone has this problem) we got that replaced(Me and a buddy) i told him id cook him steaks so we went to the store and on our way back down my bumpy drive way, my wheel comes off, and my car comes to a complete halt -.-, but anyways those fork thingys and a 4lb mallet worked for us
--<I(shitty attempt at what it kind of looks like have the fork kind of closer to the top and this may help turn around and swing it backwards if you know what i mean. anyways after a couple really strong hits the fork with the mallet(hitting it right on the end) and maybe two hits downwards on the remains of the ball joint it came right out. good luck and dont give up.
