    Help with ball joint removal!

    Hey. I got the ball joint out of its housing, but I can't get the bolt portion out of the control arm. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

    Why are you trying to take it off? You should just be loosening the castle nut and leaving the bolt in the arm.

    I took the castle nut off, but isn't that bolt that it screws onto part of the ball joint? I am just trying to get that through the arm.
