Before trying to remove the ball joints make sure to have a jack placed under the lower control arm. The springs are under a considerable amount of pressure and can fly out when you pop the ball joint. The ball joints have the same interference fit as the tie rods. A few good hammer blows to the side of the spindle should send a healthy shock wave through the part to free the ball joint. Once free the jack was lowered slowly to safely remove the spring.
