Re: ball joint cotter pin broke @#^&*(&@^
look close, make sure as much of the original cotter pin is busted off as ya can get to. down to the threaded studd if possible. ifn ya can get to it, take a screw driver, or awl and bend any remaining stubs till their as flush with the threaded stub as possible, then the nut will come off there A LOT easier with a regular socket. once the nut is off, then you can get to the stubb to clean the hole, weather ya use penn oil, ifn ya drill, be careful, REALLY EASY to bust a bit doin it.
