I put her on jack stands, pulled the front tires off, hammered the tie rod off, pulled the uper arm ball joint bolt off, unlocked and pulled off the lower arm nut and pryed it off. Then the upper ball joint moved about 1/4" got stuck and there's nothing in this world that can make it move. Am I doing something wrong? I've never seen it. Now it's sitting there soaked in WD40. Any ideas?

check both your leaf spring shackles and shackle mounts on the rear. there pretty notorious for rusting out. i would know ive had left and right go out on me and the shackle was almost through the box
