: Thanks for the good advice. Does anyone know of an alternative to the pickle (ball joint) fork, that would not destroy the rubber boot?


I've used 2 jaw pullers to separate idler arms and tie rods. Looks like they should work on the thrust arm, but haven't tried it. See the site link below for a "look see" at different pullers.
