Here the ball joints are being undone from the spindle eyes. The compressed air pickle fork makes short work of the task, which can be an ordeal when done by hand. Be sure to have the castle nuts loosened but still on the threads, so the heavy spindle and rotor assembly doesn't fall when the ball joints pop loose. If you don't have access to air tools, you can separate the ball joint with a couple of solid hits with a hammer on the spindle "eye" where the ball joint is seated.
