You will not beat this price anywhere. Especially when used with advance auto online coupon codes found with ANY internet search.

If you do not press ball joints in, you WILL screw them up. If you dont have a press, rent one from Advance Auto.

This ball joint worked great & installed correctly in the 1993 Honda Accord SE I was working on.

The only complaint I had was that the stud is longer than the OEM ball joint stud. I remedied this by putting a lock-washer in between the steering knuckle & the nut.

I would purchase this again & would use on my own vehicle.

Bought this for a honda Accord EX 2dr, 2000. Damaged the oringal BJ when i was extracting them to remove the Driveshafts. Advance had it cheap and on the shelf so it worked out. However, i would not recomend this part for someone who is not skilled at replacing them often. I do not imagine this BJ will last more than 50,000 miles, but for the price, its feels solid after install so i cant complain. I was happy to see it sold for a good price, and im not knocking the unit at all as it saved my hide, but this is not like a TRW or a Moog.

Installation? well I have all sorts of Presses and Tools and whatnot, but i found what worked the best was 3n1 high performance pentrating oil and a short handle 2 lb sledge. took about 5 minutes of beating but she came out. Put the new one in the same way as it didnt fit as tightly as the old one. Make sure you have a heavy set of snap ring pliers to install this. Due to the size and proximity of the rubber boot to the ring seat it would be VERY difficult to do the ol' screwdriver and regualr pliers routine to install the snap ring without damaging the boot.

A Huge plus on this... Comes with the Nut, snap ring and a cotter pin. ITs a complete set.

    6,000 miles later and it's knocking and creaking and gets me looks from other motorists and pedestrians every time I brake, accelerate, turn the wheel, or even open the door. Piece of junk.

                    Stay away from this ball joint! Worst I have ever used. The rubber is too large and is very difficult to fit without tearing, the snap ring is nearly impossible to put on over. The rings that hold the rubber cover onto the ball joint slip off and are too large...worst ball joint ever. Get the MOOG one, with discounts you can order it online and pick it up at the store for around 30 bucks each.

                        I replaced my girlfriends lower ball Joint after I had damaged the OEM during removal of the spindle with this one thinking " they wouldn't sell it if it didn't work ". I had the ball joint professional pressed in since I had already spent enough of my time underneath this vehicle. The ball joint lasted almost a year and then failed, costing me a lot of money for replacement parts, including a CV axle which had been replace two months prior. The ball joint hadn't sheared like you would expect it too. The ball joint had actually popped out of its socket. Being a professional mechanic full time, I know that this shouldn't happen, especially under normal driving conditions.

                        BUYER BEWARE!

                            For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
