I'm going to replace my ball joints. When I checked out the clearance to get to the nut holding the ball joint to the hub there is minimal room because of the axle. It appears like Im going to have to remove the hub from the axle. Is this what others have done or am I missing something?
Did you remove the ball joint directly below the steering knuckle? If so, how? I'm having a tough time trying to get it out. I don't see slip ring or anything I need to remove to make it easier. Although someone did mention a "slip ring".
Every time I try the removal kit (big C-clamp looking), it slips off because the threaded (top) portion of the ball joint keeps pivoting away from the pressure. I also tried a 5lb ledge with no affect.
Any advice is appreciated.
