All you need is a bolt and the nut from a peice of all thread..
1.measure the distance from ball joint thread to thread..upper to lower
2.hardware store and get the stuuff..leaving about a 1/4 inch of space to move.
3.loosen the top nut a few turns,just enough for it to pop
4.insert tool and use two wrenches to appy pressure
5.now loosen the bottom nut on ball joint and repeat.
When it lets go ur probly goona loose some knuckle skin but its safer on the knuckles of the bike..theres a link if ya wanna see it done.i`ve done it plenty it its great..and costs about 2$

That's a pretty good idea, but it won't work for all ATVs. Some ATVs have the bottom balljoint pressed down through the knuckle instead of up through the bottom A-arm. It will probably work on most sport quads, though.
