    Hello GregsKia, I was just reading through a thread that you helped with back in 2013 regarding replacing ball joints on a 2006 Sedona. You mentioned one of the difficulties with the job was getting the ball joint out of the spindle, and that adjusting it to the right angle was key to that task. I have a 2007 Hyundai Entourage (aka Kia Sedona with a different name) for which I'm trying to replace the front bushings on the lower control arms because the existing ones are torn. I tackled the job this last Saturday and was stopped dead in my tracks by the bolt holding the ball joint to the spindle. It sounds as if adjusting the angle might be the key to me getting that bolt out, and I was hoping you could share some more detail on how the angle should be adjusted. I got the nut off the bolt but couldn't budge the bolt, either with turning it or trying to hammer it out.
