ok im a little confused now what i have been hitting is the bolt that comes through the bottom of the spindle from the ball joint so what you guys are saying is to hit the side of the spindle?i figured that the bolt has to come out so hitting the top of the bolt to push it through the spindle is what i should do

No dont hit the bolt because then u wont be able to get it out hit the side of the spindle where the tie rod goes threw if u hit that about 3-4 times it should fall right out

Like was said just smack the hell out of the spindle right next to the tie rod and and it will fall right out. I bet I havent had to smak one more than four times in the last ten years. Swing the hammer like you mean it. I use a Snap-On 32oz dead blow steel face and they fall out normally the first of second strike.

I have yet to see a ball joint or tie rod end that wouldn't submit to a pickle fork and a 3# sledge. You could be the first, but I doubt it.
