if at all possible you should always refrain from heating any parts/components on your rappy.. odd are if they require that ammount of heat to remove them/free them up than the ammount of heat your going to have to apply is going to be enough to drasticly reduce the strenght of the surrounding metal ( in this case you A-arm which is something you really dont want to be weak) this applies for any metal parts/components..

QuadManiac Only the lower is replacable, as described in the manual - again page 4-53.

You dont. Once the upper a-arm ball joints are shot, you throw the whole arm out.
