i just put my new frame guards on tonight, for only 25 bucks i think they'll be a good investment..

i'm having one problem though, i have to replace the bearing on one of my A-arms and i cant get the son of a gun out of the dam A-arm so i'm gonna bring it down to our dealer tomorrow and have them press it out...

that is unless anyone else has a recommendation on how i'm supposed to get the thing outa there? i wacked it with a hammer about 100 times, thing didnt even budge...and yes i took the snap ring out of it..

HERES SOME PICS!

You can do it in a vice, but you need a piece of pipe the same inside diameter as the outside of the ball joint. this will give the ball joint some where to go as you wind the vice up.
You'll never get there with a hammer.
Takes no time with a small press. Good cheap investment from a local tool supplier.
