How hard was it to get the ball joint to come apart? I've heard those things are MF's!
Howdy DRONE,

The distance from the floor of the garage to the bottom-front of the skid plate increased ONE inch, the distance from the top of the front fender to the bottom of the beak increased ONE and 1/4 inch.

I used a very large adjustable wrench AND a large hammer, yes it was a MoFer to get that bugger to loosen up but it was either going to loosen or round off before I would give up. Owning and working on a Ural gives one the skills needed to apply a big hammer properly.
