Re: Ball Joint replacement
You can change the ball joint with the contol arm on the car. You will have to keep the spring compressed and push the spindle and brake assy up out of the way. You can borrow a ball joint press from O Rielly's auto parts for FREE!(they hold a deposit but upon return you get that back).
I just did this 2 weeks ago, pretty easy and only took about 45 minutes for both the upper and lower.
Yes I recommend an alignment following the replacement. I did not touch the tie rod end at all.
67 RS Clone, 388 SBC/Keisler TKO 600/12 bolt, 3.90 gear w/posi and a 250 shot of N2O for fun. See my progress at: password is camaro
