my bud and his dad were helping me work on the racecar
(76 Camaro dirt track car) yesterday - I snapped the lower
balljoint pretty much in half... and I decided to change both so it'll
hopefully survive the next race in one piece.
anyway, they had a heck of a time getting the spindle back on and seated
all the way on the upper joint - I think it's still loose, and I think
they ended up buggering up the joint because now the whole "stud" of the
joint spins when you try to tighten it up. The gap looks awful big as well.
I'm going to get another balljoint today incase they did bugger it up
and I'm going to have another go at it tonight - any tips on
reinstalling the top balljoint on a 76 Camaro? The car has probably 5
degrees of camber (oval track car...came that way) would that make it
harder to line it back up? Upper first, then lower? Disconnect sway
bar and tie rod? (I'll be putting a chain through the spring before
busting it loose - I'm too young to die...)
