Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

Fit my 2003 GMC Sierra 1500. I had already had this changed once before years ago else I probably would not have tried this job as you would have to grind out some pretty thick studs that are pressed in that hold the OEM one in. Since I already had that done once, this was just a matter of bolts instead of lots of grinding in a pretty difficult place. It took a little love from a hammer to get it in the bracket (no I didn't beat on the actual ball joint) but it went in. If this is your first time changing it, be prepared for several hours of grinding.

    Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

    Great ball joint however if you have factory studs in the lower factory ball joint, do not attempt this without proper tooling. I thought this would be a difficult job, but it was awful. there is a little over 1 inch of steel rivet you will have to drill though because on my 04 sierra, they would not, budge with MAP gas, 5 lb sledge, and a heavy duty air hammer. nope had to drill top to bottom, then bottom to top. Because this is a squared in ball joint drilling from the bottom is vital due to the angle from the top you dont want to throw off your bottom holes. So do not do this unless you want to be working for a long time. pay the shop.

        A:

        We would recommend using the tool. This will make the job a lot easier and less time consuming especially if the ball joints are pressed in.
