Suspension problem
1996 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

The ball joints are rusted & frozen in I cant get them to press out. Should the bottom ball joint press out the bottom? My new bottom ball joint has a snap ring on the top but the old one does not that I can tell. The top joint should press up through ithink. Should I take a cutting torch to them. Hope you can help me thanks

The original ones are held in with a injection material from the factory. The replacement ones will have a retainer clip. Heat the control arm and then press them out.
