finished my ball joints and...

well i finished my upper and lower ball joints and MAN they were a PITA. On saturday night i had to use my torch and heat the knuckle and beat it with a sledge hammer to get the spindle out after an hour of just beating it wouldnt make it budge. Then by the time i finished that side i was pooped so then on sunday night i was working on it and didnt have access to my torch so i had to plamsa cut the top ball joint off because that spindle was NOT moving at all with a 20lb sledge. but in the long run it was a good experince but now when i took my truck in to get inspected they said the wheel bearings where bad in it and when i cleaned them up and repaced them they looked fine so ill be in search of a diffrent inspection shop cuz i think they feed me a bunch of bull.
