A:The instructions needed to follow while using this Fowler Disc Brake Rotor and Ball Joint Gauge Set (Part no: FOW72-520-717) are clean the ball joints with a dry rag and examine the rubber seals. If the seals are cracked or torn the ball joints must be replaced. Place a dial indicator against the lowest point on the wheel rim. Place one hand on the top of the tire and one hand on the bottom. Pull out on the top and push in on the bottom. Record the reading on the dial indicator. Compare the readings. If the difference is greater than 0.125 inches. The ball joints should be replaced.
