Boogie has a lot of good points!

The ball joints have their own pin that needs to be removed. You'll need to pound out these pins. Be careful; if you damage the pins or their nut, you'll need to replace them. On mine, I removed the nut (it's a specialized nut), ....
That's the wedge bolt. And the nut is indeed special: It is a locknut, a full metal one. And just like the nylon locknuts, that's why it needs replacement, always. Check the Bentley, I am pretty sure it says it in there too.
