Hey guys,

My ball joints are seized and won't come out. They are so bad, the ball popped out of the back. See photo. I have nothing to "press" them out.

Anyone on here I can send them to and get them out? I'll reinstall the new one's I have.

Please post and PM if you can help.

Thanks!

I can do it for you.  Heck, send the new ones and I can install them as well.  I had this happen on one of the ball joints I pressed out.

All I use is a piece of pipe that is the same ID as the ball joint OD.  I then use a socket to press on the remaining part of the ball joint to remove it.  I'm guessing you could find a machine shop in your area that could do it a lot quicker and most likely a lot cheaper though.

I don't mind sending them to you. Wanted to get them re-powdered silver too. Do you do that?

Ummm...kind of...I still have yet to get my system down pat and I don't want to do sub par work for someone else.

I've always used a vice with good luck.

Nick, I saw your bumper. That's good enough for me. This is my "spare" set of arms, but need them for a short period.

What do you say?
