Replacing old ball-joints:

Since I was replacing all the suspension bushings anyways, I thought I might as well replace the balljoints. At first I purchased no-name brand items off ebay to save money. However, they did not mount well, the fit was just not right. I ended up purchasing some OEM style balljoints from TwosRus and doing the job properly. To remove the old balljoints you need a 3-arm puller, or a big hammer.


While installing one of the balljoints in the rear, I accidentally stripped the threads on the rear hub carrier. I was forced to drill out the hole to a larger size and re-tap.\
