Yeah, I know what you mean, but you are dealing with a car older that some of the members on this forum...it may not want to give up without a fight Enough moisture has probably seeped in between the ball joint'* taper and the spindle to rust them together.

Good news - finally got the fork and the ball joint has been released, with ease I might add. Shoulda listened to you guys earlier.

On to my next problem which has been indicated in a new post near you.
