      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      For my particular application, (2001 GMC Yukon) it is impossible to install this ball joint. The rubber grease boot comes installed and is of a larger diameter than the actual knurled part of ball joint that needs to be pressed into the control arm. The part can not be disassembled. Don't waste you time with this part.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:

      The part fit the control arm just fine, but the nut that came with the ball joint didn't fit to the piont that it stripped the threads on the ball joint stud when I tried to tighten it to get the cotter pin in. I ended up having to use the old nut from the old ball joint. Over all I would recommend using MOOG parts instead, even at twice the price, because I have dealt with this situation many times over and it will end up costing more in the long run to use the cheaper parts. I say this because these parts will not last as long under normal circumstances and you will end up paying the labor twice.

          They make a special tool called a ball joint puller that should be able to help you remove the ball joint.

        • A:

          put a bottle jack on the ground and let some weight off of the other jack holding the vehicle up. then use a ball peen hammer to hit either side of the control arm and the ball joint will pop out.
