Worlds strongest ball joints?
« on: April 19, 2013, 11:00:24 PM »
I really have to laugh,I'm in the process of changing everything out on the front end.
I cannot get the upper ball joints to budge.
I've sheared off the rivets,and have been drilling,chiseling,punching and hammering...they do not want to go!
Hopefully the lowers wont be as rough!
I've got all the items needed for renovation ready to go,shouldn't be long now?
I've spent over one hour each side so far.
The only member of the suspension I'm going to reuse is the center link,I purchased a new one,but the old one is still rock solid.
I should have bought more expensive lower ball joints...the cheaper ones don't even have a grease fitting???

The "Kit" from TAPLUS is the Best.  But since you already have it I guess use it and be prepared to change in the future.
I picked up a Pres and it is a Godsend, popped out my old and pressed in my new in a SNAP.
