The last couple of these I've removed I've had to break apart. I
think the last one was on a '99-'05 Sonata, and if my memory is
correct, I unbolted the ball joint and hammered it out from the back
side using an extension. On the Santa Fe, it may be easier to take
the strut and tie rod end loose from the knuckle.
