    6. Clean hole


    7. New joint with the old (note the new type don't actually have a C Clip so hammering it in isn't really ideal)


    8. Jig it up like so ...




    9. Turn the C Clamp ... nearly there


    10. Done ... all in 5 minutes work ...

        The new ball joints I just purchased, have the C Clip removed from the new boot, so they can be installed after the ball joint is installed, which may allow for hammering, but I will probably just use the C Clamp. Thanks again.

          Aggazi to the rescue, again

          I personaly just use a single socket and put the stearing knuckle into a vice, 2 swings of the hamer usualy breaks it loose and 1 puts it in

              When I did mine, I couldnt get the tool to work for removal. Ended up just using a BFH. But it was heaven-sent when I used it to put the new balljoint in.

                  Same here.. for removal, you don't need the tool.. just spray the top of the balljoint with PB Blaster and then a few wacks with the BFH and out it cums.. all over your face! Easy as cake.

                  For install, you're not supposed to use a hammer, the tool should work fine.. goes in nice and smooth.. like a 16yr old sheep.
