  2. If you're not using air with a good air gun then you might need to soak the heck out of it with some penetrating fluid

    Take a floor jack and jack up on the bottom end of the Ball joint. This will help hold it in place while your turning the wrench on the nut!!!

    I tried all the stuff that was said above and mine still didn't come out. I drilled 2 holes down thru the nut and than split it in 2 with a chisle. It didn't take long at all but I broke a bit because the nut span when I was drilling it.
