    The build of my flag ship Black Pearl

    What joint press did you use?

    It might be on my list of things eventually

    I can look when I get home. But it was in inexpensive one, off of amazon. It is a 12 pice kit I believe.

    It works great, I’ve done 4 sets of ball joints, my sons rear driveshaft ujoints, his front axle ujoints, and Ric’s (19yj94) track bar ends. One of the parts broke once and they sent me a new one no question.

    Well though the drivers side ball joints were bad. It didn't fix the shimmy. but it dose drive a little nicer now, so there's that. This weekend I'll be going through the front end again, to see if I missed something the first time.

    Lazy to go back through the thread. 😎
    Did you move your front tires to the rear and see if the shimmy is still there?

    Not yet, because I thought it was the bad ball joint causing the issue. I'll do a tier rotation this weekend, along with going back through the front end.

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.
