I am in the process of changing out my ball joints on my 94 xlt 4x4. i have read the forums, i have a haynes, but with all of the advice and direction i cannot get the steering knuckle off. I have all the snap rings removed, cotter pins out, the pinch bolt out, the nut completely off the lower ball joint, and obviousley the abs sensor removed, axel shaft out, and spindle off. I have hit the inside of the steering knuckle with a hammer, i have hit the outside, i have hit the top of both the upper and lower ball joint trying to force the spindle down and nothing happens. Am i missing something. I am in the USAF in Germany, i can fix a plane with no problem, but the ol ford is giving me a run for the $$$$$$. Any help, tips, point in a direction will be greatly appreciated.
