Re: Remove hub from axle to get off ball joint?
nope i remove mine with a wrench or a pair of adjustable's, once it starts lowering you will have more and more room, if you want to use an impact or socket wrench then yes you will have to remove it. now if the ball joint starts turning then you will have to get some vice grips in there to hold the ball joint while you remove the nut. heat may be necessary.
also just so you know the ball joint is pressed in so you will have to get it pressed out, and the new one pressed in. i tried to find a bolt in one but had no luck, there is a retaining ring under the dust boot that will need to be removed before you press it out
good luck hope it works out well
Canada = Awesomeness eh!
Isnt it amazing how quickly everyone can turn against you
