Default Lower Ball Joints

The other day I found that you don,t have to pull the brake/rotor assembley off to do lower ball joints!

You do however need to modify a wrench slightly

After a hard winter,Cin,s car needed these parts as the boots were pretty tore up!It took about three hours,for both sides,having just done new wheel bearings,I did not feel like re-doing this job.

After all,nothing says I Love You Honey,like new.....Whitewalls!

Cheers all,Jim ,n Cin

Jim - I was at KMS tools yesterday wasting some time and in the body shop dept they had a pistol-grip vacuum sucker device that looked like it would work well on dings,check it out if there's a KMS up there (or online?)

Cheers

Larry
