...wow surpises no one has said this yet.
Lift the arm off of the shocks weight. I guess the only way would be with the rotor? I know when i was removing my tie rods in lifted the assembly with a jack via the control arm to loosen the tension on the tie rod. Couldnt you do the same with the control arm? Im sure the ball joint isnt designed to come out at that angle?
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
