Well, I too am having the same problem. Decided to take the lower control arm to a machine shop and have the rivets pressed out. I drilled and chiseled off one end of the rivet, but as you found, they won't simply punch out. Just drilling/chiseling the heads was enough for me. I'm done. It's far simpler now to just remove the control arm. A shop will have them out in minutes with out damage to the arm from off any off center drilling. In the morning, I'm off to the shop with the part.

How do you replace ball joint 91 buick century?

Hi, first you remove the tire and then the caliper. The caliper will have two hex head bolts holding it on. They are on the back of the caliper. Loosen them, and then pry them the rest of the way out. Once the caliper is off, you can then slide the rotor off. This will give you easier access to the ball joint. Work on getting the 3 rivets that are on the underneath of the joint off by either drilling or grinding them off. Once these are off, you are ready to remove the ball joint and install the new one. You will replace the rivets with bolts supplied when you get your new joint.
