The separator tool is referred to by us old schoolers as a "pickle fork".1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.

Just went ahead and bought the pickle fork anyway for the future when/if I have to do this again; only 10$. So tomorrow I will be doing this in the morning and will be getting an alignment later.
If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

Well I got them changed out. All I have to do is tighten 12 lug nuts and spend more money for an alignment. Did have a stubborn ball joint on the passenger side; would not tighten down. If I turned the nut, the threads would spin inside of the joint...took a few minutes of head scratching to figure that out as the truck had all the weight on the ball joint. So about 10 wacks on each side of the control arm with a maul and it was good as gold. Took a lunch break to eat some steak and gravy. Kinda anxious to see how it rides now.
Thanks for all yalls help gents

Good to hear you got it swapped out.
I went to Ace hardware (I know not exactly the mecca of tools) and asked for a 15/16 crow foot and got the same response. They had some hanging on a hook so I showed him what I was talking about they just didn't have the size I needed.
