Comments about Driveworks Suspension Ball Joint:
I purchased this to replace the right upper ball joint on my 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 truck. The website showed this as an "exact fit" for my vehicle so I wordered it and picked it up. I also rented the ball joint servicing kit from my local store to press this in and out. First of all this ball joint is too big to use with the servicing kit the way the kit is designed, but that is not an issue with the part.
Once I got the old joint out I compared it to the new joint and noticed that the rubber boot and the clip that holds the rubber boot on were larger on the new joint, infact the boot and clip were the largest part of the joint other than the lip that prevents the joint from pressing all the way through. The size of the boot is a problem because it must go through the opening since the joint can only press in from the top (the lip discussed earlier requires this).
I tried to press this through hoping the rubber boot and brass clip woulr compress without a problem, no such luck. The boot and clip go hung in the opening. I managed to remove the joint, but the boot was ripped and the clip was mangled and useless. The damage did allow me to remove the boot from the joint and then press the joint through with no problem. without the clip to hold the boot on and the hole in the boot I am relying on the knuckle to holding the boot up and resigned to the fact I will need to grease the joint regularly to replace lost grease from the boot.
this could have all been prevented if the part had been manufactured with the boot and clip being smaller than the neck you are trying to press into the whole or by making the boot and clipe something that could be removed and placed on the joint after it is pressed in.
