how do i replace ball joint
lower ball joint will not break free from steering knuckle. is there a special tool required to
You can loan them at autozone ball joint press
Or smack it with a hammer but you don't want to break anything
A regular ball joint press will not work. I bent the tube and the ball joint didn't even move
Have that too. Still no luck. I'm currently banging it with a 3 lb sledge hammer but this thing isn't budging
Don't know if either of those will help. Best of luck.
Saw this earlier. May resort to that if I can't figure it out. It's dark now so I'll have to attack it again tomorrow
Just one thing. I only watched less than a minute of those, to make sure it is the right car. But please, please, they ought to be ashamed with their legs under the cars with crappy-ass jack stands the the car could fall off balance with so much as a guy leaning on it to see what you are doing. It's actually a good jack-stand in the second one but the placement needs to be under frame or chassis. Lecture over.
Spray some PB Blaster around ball joint and let soak a little before trying to remove and you need to put a jack stand or something solid under the control arm near the ball joint before hitting with hammer so that it will not bounce when hitting it needs a good solid support.
