We have decided to sell the van but we're trying to get as many things done on it beforehand. Lowering it being one of them but after putting the rear on we are finding it impossible to put the front on, we decided to replace upper ball joints but cannot remove them have tried ball joint separators! Any tips we just wanna get it done and gone asap so I can get something I can drive!

i take the top arm bolt out when doing the front springs. as the camber needs resetting really, are you using a fork type seperator that you beat in with a hammer or the bolt type that winds down on it and pushes it out Question

long bar to lever suspension apart and then hit the mount point that ball joint pin mounts through as this will shock apart.
