I used the same ball joint tool from ZDMAK. Hit the stud with a good shot of PB before clamping down the tool. I tightened it until it got difficult to go much further with the wrench. Left to go out to eat, and when I got back the ball joint had popped loose! So I did the same thing to the other arm.. clamped the tool down and went to bed. Woke up and the same result.. So have a little patience and no need to kill yourself turning that wrench until the arm pops loose.
