lol...whats there to damage??? an old ball joint?? lolNordiX said:It's like a puller, but it clamps on to the control arm and uses a big threaded bolt to press the balljoint out.
Much safer... much cleaner... much less likely to damage something.
yup.... i've done seven or eight suspensions and i have to say it gets more use than any other tool. it's good to have a really heavy metal one and a slightly lighter rubber mallet for those delicate pieces.NordiX said:I'm laughing at the BFH thing... I can only assume D16 means 'Big F'n Hammer.'
They also have these pieces of crap that look like tuning forks, but the forks are shaped like wedges. you put the fork on either side of the joint and hammer it forward, separating the ball joint. the puller is quicker and easier, but much less fun than the fork or the hammer.NordiX said:in this case I would recommend running to a local parts store and renting, or an auto tools store and buying a balljoint press.
