Any tips on removing the ball joints from the control arms? They appear to be screw in and i see where TCI used anti-seize, but i cannot get the balljoints to budge even with my full body weight and using all of my strength on a large socket and breaker bar. I tried heating them up as well, but no luck. Guess i should have ordered them already powdercoated.

Thanks

They are installed at 100 ft lbs and like you mentioned a healthy amount of anti-seize is used. I would just suggest keep trying with the breaker bar. If you can't get them loose then I'll get the gears rolling on sending a replacement set without the joints installed.
