    My favorite tools are usually home made. Lol good thinking.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michel Labonte says:

    I mean, I just spread the knuckle with a chisel and pull the ball joint out by reinserting the stud in the control arm and levering on that, but whatever I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Forrest says:

    Man, I should have spent yesterday watching videos and making a SBJP1.0, rather than spending hours beating on it. I eventually got it out by putting the castle nut back on through the arm, and using a pickle fork wedged against a bar taking up the rest of the space to the knuckle.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Gable says:

    For the stuck bolt, I wonder if a Ramset would put enough force into it to break it loose, or if it would just explode the bolt.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ashley Jagers says:

    I just use a small chisel a big prybar and a hammer and pull the control arm down with the ball joint.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Kuehn says:

    Hey Eric, Thanks for all the great videos! I've done a few Subie ball joints and found using a small chisel tapped in the gap on the ball joint yoke helps reduce the grip on the ball joint has in the yoke.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NightForce 1 says:

    Don't you just impress the hell out of yourself sometimes!!

    Seriously though Eric, as you were explaining some of the difficulties with Subaru's a "threaded rod coupling" popped into my head but I hadn't thought of using the slide hammer……KISS principal!
