I have a 2006 Mazda 6I. The front suspension started groaning so I'm replacing the lower control arm (forward). There is a spacer between the ball pin and the knuckle that I don't see in drawings. It won't come off the ball pin. (See pic) Yes, I've tried a puller, a fork, freezing, torching, penetrating oil, sledge hammer, and every combo of these. Any other suggestions? Next I'm taking it to a shop for hydraulic assistance! I can't seem to find a part number for this spacer or I'd replace it.

Thx. Apparently this part isn't stocked by ANYONE. Ordered it online but I'm dead in the water until it arrives. I'm going to change out my sway bar links while it's on blocks anyway since the boots are dry rotted to hell.
