Hello all, I am trying to remove and replace the lower ball joint on my 1997 Ford Ranger 2.3l 4x2. I removed the camber adjuster on the top one and the spindle is rotating freely around the bottom. The problem is that the lower ball joint stud is not moving and seems seized within the spindle . Can I assume that it is broken off from the rest of it? I tore off the rubber boot to get a better look as well. Any ideas on how I can separate the ball joint from the spindle? Also, my photo shows that the lower ball joint is flush with the underside of the spindle and not showing any retaining clip like the upper one which I removed. Is this normal for the Ford stock part? Thanks for any help you can offer!!
