Tool idea-- ball joint spanner---

For Subaru's I typically avoid using either though - the pinch where the ball joint is installed into the knuckle is my prefered attack point. I realize that these get nasty with rust but my feeling is that it's going to have to be corrected at some point anyway and better now than later. And it's easy enough to drill out the pinch bolt and through-bolt it if neccesary. I use the above tool when I'm replaceing a ball joint and it usually doesn't hurt the boot.
