    Seeing as how i have been removing ball joints for over fifty years without the need to drive anything in to damage the rubbers, on everything from cars to trucks i don't think it's me that needs to learn anything. ;):D

    Same way you break the top one i don't need to watch videos. Maybe a bar helps I made a tool for height adjustment. .

    Do the top one first. Remove the top nut leave bottom nut backed off but in place . Strike top of hub where taper is engaged proper striking will release top taper. Then do same to bottom taper position to release bottom taper. Hub will be retained by nut. Remove nut remove hub.

    Could do with borrowing that one day when I get around to mine. Don't tend to go through Bury so much these days but I'm overdue a visit so maybe I could combine the two?

    Now now less of the racist natter. You know it is not PC to say how good white pudding is without a reference to the virtues of black pudding at the same time.

    Safest just to say that all puddings are good before the LGBTQIA+ puddings start to say it's more than a race issue.

    To the best of my knowledge all black and white puddings are heterosexual. Apart for the puddings that aren't and will complain about anything of course.
