OK, I am in a bind. I have removed everything to have clear access to my lower ball joint. I have the ball joint press ready to go, but I cannot figure out how to get the top cap off of the old ball joint so that I can use the ball joint press. Does anyone have an idea how these are suppose to come off. I have attached a picture of the culprit so hopefully you will be able to see what I am dealing with. The new one that goes on has a snap ring which is not a problem, but what is on the old one is not a snap ring. Any help would be greatly apprecitated.
