I replaced a wheel bearing this weekend. you need to take off the knuckle, and in order to take off the knuckle you need to separate the 3 balljoints... so i took a video.

I used my favorite method, 3lb sledge hammer. You'll see how easy it is on a tie rod end. The method is the same with the lower and upper balljoint.

Then i got to use the official honda balljoint separater tool... it was easy too. i would prefer it over the hammer method, EXCEPT its kind of expensive. in all, i think its just easier to just have a 3lb hammer available to pop off a balljoint.
