wicked tuning camber kit install help

&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]"> &mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">
i have a problem removing the joint circled in yellow. Do i need a special tool for that? i thought there was just a nut underneath(red arrow) with a pin and it show come out. But it was still snug. I removed the [email protected]$$ bolt(red circle) annoying btw, still wont come out. Any info would help.

i searched and everyone says its really easy with just basic hand tools but i cant seem to get this last joint out. thank you!

Check the head of the bolt on the underside of that yellow joint...I think it's like your endlinks where there's an allen head in the end of the bolt so you can hold the bolt while turning it with an open ended wrench.

you need to go rent a ball joint separator from any of the retail auto part store.

GL with the install.

Hmm, I got it out...blow torch to heat up, A wedge to gain leverage, hammer to knock out. U won't be needing the oem camber kit anyway so If u damage it who cares, idk tht was my point of view, one took 2 min to get out the other took 15

Yea I had a ball joint get stuck...I took it to my uncle's shop to have it removed. I'm not sure what he did or how he did it, but he removed it. According to NVA-AV6...water on the surfaces that make contact can cause it to stick like that after being compressed over time.

you need to rent a ball-joint seperator tool. it'll make your life so much easier and the install go that much faster.

in case you don't know what it looks like, it's a fork shaped tool that wedges in between the arm and the hub attachment. you will hammer that wedge in between to pop it loose.
