Can someone tell me what the recommended procedure is for the removal of 
original equipment forged on or peened tie rod and drag link balls? It is my 
understanding that the bottom visible diameter is larger than the shaft that 
comes through the member. This would indicate the need for drilling, milling, 
or some operation to remove the larger diameter portion prior to removal. I 
don't know if the material in these parts is tempered, casehardened, or what.
