Need a few more details, like which version... but they all require the removal of the bolts and/or nuts.

Not familiar w/that set up but on tight steering tie rods have someone pry down on the link (leave the nut on a couple threads) and hit the mount with a hammer or air hammer-should work the same

loosen the nut, take a hammer and bit the side of the ball joint a few good licks at a time and it will pop loose and drop right out of there, or do as said above and use a large pry bar and put a bunch of tension against the ball joint and hit the side of it with a hammer a few times, should break right loose, might try a lil PB blaster n the mix too

Take off nut and apply a healthy dose of PB blaster. Then use a pickle fork on an air hammer and have at it. Should pop right off.

Thanks guys got it off with a Pickle fork, hammer and PB blaster lol. Now with the adjustable track bar how do I set it up? The lift came with no instructions so not sure but right now if I line the track bar up with it on the lower ball joint the top is about a good inch or two from lining up. How do you adjust the track bar? Do you take out the allen screws and pull it out farther or does it screw out farther?
Thanks guys

Too late for this, but I used a large puller and got mine off. Used a hammer for quite a while with no luck.
