I'm trying avoid using a pickle fork in order to seperate the valve from the Pitman Arm. I rented a souple of pullers from the autozone but their smallest one won't fit in the space between the valve (ball stud) and the frame.
Does somehave have a pic (or the size of) the puller used to remove this? :)

I used a tie rod end puller that looks similar to this one.

i second the pickle fork, just make sure the throat is as narrow as possible to avoid damaging the valve. you can also try putting one sledge on the back side and hitting with the control arm with a second, in a pinching motion to flex the control arm and squirt the tapered valve stem out. i've used this method in the past with stubborn tie-rods and ball joints with success.
