dunno, i just put the little ball joint press on it and crank down on it.. then start whacking the ball joint with a big *** hammer and punch and it normally pops right out..


chassis work isn't the glamor side.. it normally involves a big hammer

and about the ball joints if you cool them down metal shrinks when cold but it has to stay cold or it will expand. Just use a press and you'll be as good as gold.
