    Damn thing with Johnny joints is that they are like king shocks. Expensive as fuck. And just as expensive to service or rebuild. After buying the kits, install tool, misc crap you could just buy brand new joints. lol

    Lol. If the one I popped happened to be on the adjustable rod end side I would’ve contemplated getting a whole new assembled piece to just thread in there and save me a headache. Unfortunately I popped the fixed side. Didn’t see those bolts. Might call em back and give it a shot. If it works, would make greasing the frame side of the front lowers much easier.

    I’m thinking they don’t come this way originally. Would be nice to grease thru the bolt though.
    That would make it a heck of a lot easier to grease.
    I suppose you could drill a hole in your ball centers and just install a greasable bolt.

    That’s odd. Would be neat to see pictures when you get it apart.

    Never seen or heard of it but if it’s the axle end just buy a new joint. The rebuild kits don’t come with the ball they only come with snap rings, washers and the plastic pieces. The new joint is like $20 more and comes with a new housing and the new spherical ball. It’s really a no brainer. Good luck finding the spherical ball for sale anywhere too.

    I keep a couple extras in the tool kit now.

    Yep quick and easy when you go to the right place. Moab Motorsports in Moab has done a few and it took him about an hr to roll it back down and weld the tubes and plug welds.
    All about the leverage to rotate it back.

    Bummer

    I hope it don't screw up your trip too bad. Did you find a way to get it fixed yet?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
