I had to use a pickle fork. Replaced all the lower control arms wt bushings, upper ball joints, new lollipop brackets, all factory bmw. Been solid for months now. It was pricey, but worth it.Just ordered these, new FCAB, & inner joints....weekend project coming up.
Question is, can you get a ball joint separator in there or you need a pickle fork for the knuckle side (not the inners).
