Hi Chip, the ball joint is in the knuckle. He's trying to swing the control arm down enough to clear the ball joint, not remove it.

tbird pointed out that there is a recall on the 00 Taurus for broken coil springs, 10yr/150k I believe is what he said.

Sounds like he is trying to get the ball joint out to me. Reread the post.
