  • Ball joint replacement

    Got a good price on Ebay for a ball joint kit. Was quoted $68 for the RH Lower and got a set of 4 for $104 delivered..

    Had to replace the RH lower as it was totally knackered. What a PITA this was to change. Had to remove the hub assemble to remove the three retaining bolts. All up about 3 hours work.. upper only took another 10 minutes to change.

    As I got a kit with all 4, I've decided I will change the left side tomorrow ( bit of preventative maintenance)..

    Cant wait LOL

    Yeah the lower ones are a pain, I managed to replace them without removing the hub. Had to give it a tap with the hammer but it can be done mate. Mines is a 2003 model.

      I did the left side today.. after knowing that it would be easier to remove the hub, a 3 hour job on the RH side took 1 1/2 hours on the left. Happy now that I have 4 new ball joints. In for a wheel alignment next week and then happy travel days.

      Cheers Lenny
