Hello. Sometimes you have to hit it awfully hard with a big ball peen hammer and a strong pickle fork to break them loose. I usually use my air hammer with a pickle fork attachment. Alternatively, you can use a ball joint separator rented from the auto parts store. Was that what you were wondering?

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
