Ball joints, particularly the lower ones, can sometimes be very stuck. If the tapered bore is a little galled, beating on the side of the joint is unlikely to shock it free. I am not a fan of pickle...

I suspect you'll get an air bag code. I don't know if C6 air bag codes clear on their own. On some cars (such as Mercedes) they don't, so you have to use a suitable scan tool to reset the light.

Try unplugging the big blue connectors at the BCM and drenching them in electrical contact cleaner. They have a tendency to lose contact.
