    hit the control arm where the ball joints go through them with a hammer. leave the nuts on the ball joints to protect the threads, and to keep the spindle from falling off when they come loose.

    what lift are you installing?

    hit the control arm with a hammer (rubber mallet) it will come out with a few good hits.

    Chris (Chris4x4) or one of them will chime in, in a few minutes or so. They will help you out more than I can.

    if your only putting in say a RevTek kit, you should not have to remove the spindle to get the strut assembly out.
