Hi folks, this is my first time posting, and I’m elbows deep in some work I thought somebody might be able to opine on, and help me out. I have a 1998 k2500 5.7L and I’m trying to replace upper and lower ball joints. At this pint I’ve pounded on the lower ball joint about a million times, the removal kit I got is pretty much toast, got bent up after using an impact wrench on it. At this point, I can see what looks like a crack in the lower control arm, and it looks like I’ve chipped part of the top where the ball joint sits. I guess my main question is, is it that much further of a step to just replace the lower control arm and put the ball joint I bought into a new one? See pics below, any thoughts are much appreciated.
