    You need a proper balljointsplitter ,one that won't destroy the dust cover on the joint.see item 5060504000727 on eBay to see what I mean.

    For the swivel, two hammers on either side at same time, plus the wedge splitter hammered in tight to pre-load the taper. Check which joint is more wobbly, and do the other one first. That way the swivel has movement to allow the taper to move.

    For trackrod ends I usually use either use the hammer trick or a tool like that ebay one.

    I assume the top balljoint is trashed? No idea why it came out like that or why its so god damn stuck :D Question is if the new balljoints will be seated correctly or if the bore is to big?? Or is it maybe not considered as a balljoint change as they only been there for a week and driven 1 time

    From memory so I may be wrong,only one is a balljoint and the other is a swivel pin.:confused: are there two different part number for the top and bottom? Just checked and lower joint is FTC3571and upper is FTC3570

    Yes, there are 2 different part numbers dividing top and bottom.

    If i am not wrong, the top balljoint only moves vertical whilst the lower one fiddles around as a normal ball joint? Will that say i can just pop the top one in again? If its just held by vacuum or anyhow?

    I wouldn't take the chance, you don't know what damage you've done.think it should be a turning motion rather than a vertical movement, sorry @Rubberknees .:eek:;)
