It got soaked in plentyful wd40 beforehand, and during, I've removed the brake disc, caliper etc, so have a clear view of the balljoint.
Unfortunately for me, which is probably not helping, I undid all the bolts to the wishbone, so its only held on by the balljoint.
Upper wishbone and the shock are not connected anymore either.
Not sure if the blowtorch I was using could get it all hot enough to be honest, its just a little butane one with disposable cartridges, it cooked the grease out of the balljoint quick enough though.
after knocking 6 bells of the brown stuff out of the thread of the balljoint I noticed the 6mm (i think) hex inside of it, and because of me hitting the thread, I cant even use that with a long breaker bar to perhaps get a spin on it.
