I had to modify a ball joint tool from eBay using a little dremmel to fit over L405 ball joints. Most of these tools have an opening of 19mm, but to fit over L405 ball joints it needs to be ~25mm. Typically, I hammer out the old ball joints since I replace entire control arms, but this last replacement of lower control arms didn’t go as planned. The passenger’s side arm just wouldn’t give up...really frustrated me.
