Does anyone have any tips or hints on removing upper ball joints from the controll arm on a 1994 Dakota?

Thanks!

An impact tool may not be effective with the arm mounted in rubber bushings. It 'gives' too much and the rubber absorbs the impacts.
A 3/4" breaker bar should crack it loose and the impact may unscrew it from there. If the vehicle is supported on jackstands, may sure that it stays on them.
A foaming graphite solvent/penetrant may help with the threads.

Yeah, that's what I had to do for the Cordoba... A massive breaker bar and a lot of pulling. I think that the second car I did I installed 'em with the breaker bar too, which was actually faster than using air...
