With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Ah....Well, Im pretty sure the second gens ball joints need to be pressed out. You can rent a ball joint press. Works like this

My ball joint boots are leaking, so I did some research to find out how to change them.
I ended up finding this article : http://www.minitruckinweb.com/tech/s...oma/index.html
That shows how to install a drop kit, but it also shows how to remove the ball joint boot.

So now, I just need to find the part number for the bad boots
