Lower Ball Joint Install
I bought the lower joints today, and they did not look like I expected.
Instead of pressing out the ball, you apparently press out the assembly.
The Replacements I have are full Socket and Ball assemblies, not just ball joints.
I have the ball joint press that the autozone site said I needed.
But I'm not real sure on the removal proccess.
When I changed the stabilizers, I found it very easy to heat up the sway bar with a torche and tap out the old stabilizers, but I didn't know if this method would work here.
So, you guys know the best procedure for this? Should I use the ball joint press for removal and installation? Or can I hammer the old one out without too much risk? Haven't had any trouble with the rest of the swaps but wanted a little advice before I dive into this in the morning. She needs to be ready for work by 4 pm.
Thanks in advance,
