    Guys, some progress was made...

    20170112_191335.jpg

    Picked the press up late, so haven't pulled them yet. But will get started on them again in the morning.

    One thing I forgot, was the stuff needed to grease the ball joints. I have the grease gun, any particular grease that I should look to pick up?

    They should have came pre-greased.

    I thought so too, but reading through the paper that came with them made me think otherwise. I'll read through it again, about to get started back working on it.

    If anything, you can just squeeze it with grease till it shoots out. Wouldnt hurt to take the extra precaution lol

    Looks like you were right, they are greased already. Might hit them with a bit before putting everything back together.

    For progress, I got the top one out easy, the bottom is being a bitch. But that balljoint is completely shot. Might not be helping the situation..

    Yeah, i had trouble with both of them. The C gussets made it a huge bitch to take them off. Yeah, both my lowers were fried as well.

    What are you using to remove them? I have gussets and they posed zero issue. I was using a snap on bj press.

    At first i was using a rental one from autozone. Didnt have the right length parts or something im guessing. But thats when my mechanic buddy came to me out and brought his BJ press. Which also was a snap on, so i guess you can say it was a snap after that.

    That's exactly why I rented from advanced auto over auto zone. They had a full kit, with an entire set of adapters.

    I got it all done, minus fully greasing the lowers. Need to get a needle adapter for the grease gun.
