8.25 IFS ?\'s
Im doin my ball joints, like im right in the middle of it, and ive replaced the top 2. My lower ones are press fit, but it doesn't look like i can get to them with out pullin the half shaft. DO i really have to go rent a nother puller from autozone to get the flange of to remove the shaft or is there an easier way? Please help, until i figure it out my truck is on blocks.

Re: 8.25 IFS ?\'s
You're having trouble getting the CV out? Just unbolt it from the diff and take off the nut on the outside and pull it out. If you're having trouble getting the lower ball joint out (and you already removed the rivets, or don't have rivets and removed the bolts) just put a pickle fork between the LCA and the ball joint and hammer that son of a ... until it comes loose.

Any good write ups on the installation of the ball joints on a truck with press in lowers. I need to see how somebody else did it.
