I am in need of replacing the upper and lower ball joints on both front
wheels. I am wondering if this is a complicated thing to do, and if some
special tools are required? The shop is asking approx 220.00 in labour +
parts. I am a bit on the broke side, and I can learn and save some money
while the bank is tight, why not. Any on line web site with general
info on replacing the ball joints? any tips, will be highly appreciated.
You're wasting your time.
The tools alone are going to cost you enough
to warrant paying someone else to do it.
Unless your big into pain and frustration.
in that case....do a repost and I'll give you
some really nasty, bloody knuckle, head
bangin tips that include a big arse hammer,
some cinder blocks, letting the air out the
tires, a wood chisel, the ole lady's nail file,
a flat head screw driver, a piece of black
iron pipe, a bumper jack, some cable tv wire, and a really drunk buddy.
that's bout the only way i could help
without you spending at least a couple
hundred on tools.....but i'm willing if you
