Any help will be greatly appreciated. > My mechanic friend and I just replaced all 4 ball joints on my 86 900T. A few of my bolts were rusted into place. Our technique requires 2 people. First one runs the half-inch impact, the other one handles a hammer and a brass rod of a diameter slightly smaller than the bolts. As the bolt is turning you can beat it out. We were rather liberal with the anti-seize during reassembly.
