Replacing ball joints 2008 sierra 1500 4x4 the lower joints seem to have a cap over them making it impossible to press them out.
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 8 months ago.

Do you have a torsion bar front suspension. or does it have coil springs on the front?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Coil springs, but I found the answer. Yes you have to grind the cast cap off so you can push out the old ball joints and push in the new one. Thanks anyway
