Any tips on removing the lower front ball joint? I was trying to replace mine today but can't get it out if the wishbone - I presume it is rusted in place but heat from a blow torch didn't make a difference. I've left it with lots of penetrating fluid sprayed everywhere I can. Not sure if I've missed anything so any suggestions welcome.

Perhaps oxy acetylene and a hydraulic press?

I took off the wishbone and put it in the hydraulic press.  It is only 4 bolts to take it off after all.
