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.
