[T3] Raise it up.


Mine also stuck. I place a jack under the lower trailing arm and jack it up till it almost lifts the car. Then I GENTLY tap down on the upper trailing arm with, yes, the dreaded 3 pound sledgehammer, till the two are seperated. Then according to how lucky you are you just have to pull the knuckle out . If your not so lucky ,wrestle it out, but be cafeful. I hope you are using jack stands under the front beam. ;-o
