i searched and although there were tons of threads on ball joint replacement, i still have a question.

im reading the haynes manual and it says seperate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.....is the steering knuckle the spindle?

also, anybody know how hard it is to press out and press in the ball joints usuing a ball joint press?


thanks for the help

The actually job isn't too bad if you take your time and have a pickle fork and a press (just ordered one press kit from Harbor freight for 27 including shipping you might want to check it out).

funny, i just started my balljoint swap this morning.

i think steering knuckle = spindle.

i can't get my balljoint to separate out of the spindle. even after i bought an air hammer and a picklefork. do i have to unload the torsion bar?

any suggestions??? need the car soon...
