    Pro steer ball joints rebuild

    So I just ordered a rebuild kit for my ball joints. Drivers side has a ton of play in it(found the front end shimmy). Is says the kit come with all the parts to rebuild all four joints. So my question as I haven't had rebuildable joints before. Do I just rebuild the ones that are bad and save the other parts for when needed? Or do I rebuild all of them at the same time?

    I’d do at least both the upper and lower on each side while the knuckles are off.

    Do the full driver side and then when you have time in the future knock that passenger side out.

    That's all I would do too. Wouldn't want to do any more work than you have to.

    Thank you. This is what I was thinking. Wasn't sure what common practice was or is. I should have time to do both sides. I have about three weeks till I'm on the rubicon again. Hopefully they ship out sooner than later.

    Someone on here will be able to answer my question. Rebuilding my ball joints today upper no real problems. Lowers I can't find instructions to get them apart. Everything I've found is for a different style. This is what I have. IMG_2950.jpg the information I have found on Dynatrac's page and other places is a different style of lower, that looks similar to the upper just flush top.

    Thanks, I got it. Having not done it before I was unsure how the lower came out. But it's all up and running again now 🤙

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.
