Thanks a lot guys your help was mostly appreciated. That tip you gave me about just take a sledge hammer and knock on the back of the spindle will pop the ball joint right out was amazing. After my 3rd strike it bounced completlely out. And your fast response time to my question(delema) was simply untouchable. Boy am I glad people like me can count on people like you! Oh yea, no one from 2carpros helped me. They did however delete my other post about how they ignored me. Guess sensorship is a practice on this site as well.
