Re: Lower Ball Joint Removal
I am planning to change mine soon. Already have the parts. What I plan to attempt is to jack the car, remove the wheel, lower the drum onto a support to collapse the spring, attach a spring compressor to the collapsed spring and then rejack. I am hoping this will give me enough clearance to get the ball joint out. I just don't look forward to screwing around with the subframe.
Oh, I don't know how I am going to get the ball joint out of the A frame? or what ever its called. I have a gear puller but someone suggested a different type of puller that I might purchase before I start the job.
