Re: My Balls are Shot!!!

Job completed: I Just replaced my ball joints and man! what a difference. both lowers were bad uppers were still ok, but I replaced them anyway. The steering is much tighter. overall better control and smoother ride. It was a pain in the ass if you dont have the right tools (as with most jobs). We had air tools (ratchets, impact wrench, air hammer, die grider.) Had to borrow a puller for the hub. and had to buy a 38mm axel nut socket. but, once we actually got to the ball joints, ground off the rivets with a die grider. used a air hammer to punch out the rivets and poped out the ball joint. that was the easy part.
