Are my spindle and ball-joint one piece?

    Trying to install my new UCA (camburg uni-ball) and this is where I'm stuck. My truck has 114k miles so there is some definite corrosion but I've been cranking down on this thing with a PosiLock 3-jaw press with no luck. Almost looks like it's one piece; is that even possible?

    Any ideas?

    That c-clamp kit doesn't match up flush with my 2001 spindle. I may be able to use part of it with the 3-jaw press. I'll give it a go.

    That is most definitely a ball joint pressed and rusted in the spindle. What he said rent a ball joint press, makes it pretty easy

    So, driver's side rusted to hell but got it out with some hammering. Getting a press to press in the new uni-ball.
