    I'm trying to replace the ball joints on my 2009 legacy and I can't get the ball joint to release from steering knuckle. Wondering if there's any easy way to do it or is heating it up gonna be my best option?

    pretty sure he meant the knuckle. Another trick is to insert a piece of steel in the slit, and thread the bolt in the threaded side of the knuckle to push on the piece you inserted, and press the knuckle open. A big fender washer would probably do the trick.
