Well after getting smacked in the head for the 5th time I decided I would change my trunk shocks. So I started taking the old ones off and when I was trying to take the top part off the **** ball snapped off. So now I'm up **** creek because its pot metal and can't be welded. My current idea is to cut off the rest of the stem, drill an 8mm hole and tap it out and install another ball. That seem like the best plan? Also, how in the **** are we supposed to take those things loose? There isn't any clip, and they don't screw off so is it just extreme force or something? Thanks.
