We began on the driver side and used a 9/16-inch wrench to remove the tie rod and nut and then loosened both the upper and lower ball joints. Using a 7/8-inch wrench on the bottom, we loosened the ball joint and loosened the top ball joint with a 3/4-inch wrench. Once both were free, we could pop the joint with a separator tool. With a hydraulic jack supporting the lower arm, we released the upper A-arm and removed the entire spindle and brake assembly.
