Hi RLee -

Thanks for the great information and pictures.

Question for you - how did you separate the press fit tapered shaft on the upper Ball Joint from the Upright?

I don't want to tear up my upper A-Arm with a pickle fork...

Thanks -


Rocky, I don't have an air hammer. So, I made up a little turnbuckle thingy, reversed the nut,  and pressed out the ball joint. I may have rapped lightly on the upright to get the ball joint to pop out once under pressure.
