I was driving around with 3 on one side for about 3 years...as the last time I had to pull a CV was at the Tellico TakeoverDick Foster said:Remember to put some blue locktight on the four bolts when you reinstall it. They have a habit of coming loose. When that happens, it's not fun or pretty.
A pickle fork works pretty well to get them out, however it will usually eat the grease boot in the process.cooper4x4 said:After removing the 4 bolts and the outer tie-rod, how do I get the ball joint loose without buying the SST? How does the new one go back in? Thanks in advance
check the date of the thread99TanTaco said:Other than a BFH, a breaker bar and some sockets are there any other tools neccessary to replace a lower ball joint?
What is the "SST" referred to in the first post?
Is there a write-up on this somewhere?
Any other tips or advise (that wasn't already posted above) would be appreciated.
