Not sure of the exact size. You may need to measure the ball joints with a caliper if you decide to use the pickle fork. I have used both a pickle fork and a ball joint remover as referenced in the previous post. The latter is a safer bet with regard to preventing tears in the ball joints and it is easier to use in tight spots.
Just for reference there are pickling fork attachments for air hammers if you have a compressor. Just saw one the other day at my local Sears.
JC Whiney have a couple of joint separators at a fraction of the cost of the IAP model. Buy them both and you will be able to separate ball joints and tie rod ends without damaging them.

I have heard that there was a bad batch of repro 2L oil pumps that were out there a few years ago. I got a new, unused oil pump with a batch of parts and trying to figure out if it might be from that lot.
Does anyone know the vendor or any markings that would identify such a pump?

I noticed that the 164 & 168 guys have a very active thread about what they've been up to, and I think us Spider guys and gals need to get with the program- so I'm gonna start and see what happens!
