Need to replace the lower ball joints in my 2002 Dodge Durango SXT. Receiving conflicting advise. Some say that I have to replace the whole control arm with new ball joint. Others say that I can press the old ones out of the control arm and press new ball joints with grease fittings up into it... the existing ball joints are factory and do not have grease fittings. I can't be sure, but it looks like the top of control arm that houses the ball joint is solid cast. It doesn't appear to be a "hole"


It looks like if you buy the joint from Chrysler then it comes complete with the arm however there are aftermarket companies that make just the ball joint which can be pressed in and out. It's fairly common for a manufacturer to offer the joint only ... 2002 Dodge Durango

How do I replace the upper Control arms on My 1979 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I saw a replacement control arm that has the bushings and ball joints already installed. I'm trying to save the high labor cost that this involves. I can replace the ball joints myself but I know that you need special tools to replace the bushings. Would I still need to try to get this tool since the new upper control arms have them installed already?


Since the new arm comes with the bushings, there is no reason to get the tool to install them. Upper arms are relatively easy to install...just a bolt out, bolt in operation as the springs aren't involved. Support the suspension under the lower contr ... 1978 Chevrolet C1500

Continuation of 1998 Plymouth Breeze Stiff Steering Issue Well, we ended up replacing basically all of the front end of this 1998 Plymouth Breeze because it was totally worn out. We replaced the front motor mount, the rear motor mount, upper ball joints, front struts, both CV axles, both control arms (lower ball joints), the Rack & Pinion and Tie Rod ends We even replaced the water pump and timing belt because the water pump was leaking and since we had it open, we replaced the timing


First, the mechanic has no idea what that switch is most likely. I have several Rack and Pinions for dodge and Plymouth vehicles and none have any electrical on them however I have seen some that do and having looked at these I'm pretty sure it is a ... 1998 Plymouth Breeze

My Tahoe has some play in the steering. I took it into an independent garage and was told the pitman and idler arms needed replacing. Knowing I could do the work myself, I drove the beast home and crawled under it to take a look. Everything but the ball joint on the pitman arm looked fine. Some grease is coming out of the ball joint, so I am sure it will need replacing. The ball joint, is not causing the play in the steering. When I move the steering from one side to the next, to check play,


Hi Jeff,Play in steering is compounded by each weakness, no matter how slight, that exists in the entire steering linkage. I admire your technique in troubleshooting. You definitely make valid points with your observations. ... 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe

The only thing wrong with it is that the v joints needed to be replaced... or so the previous owner thought since i had it I have had to replace the altator, cv joints, batt, fuses, and now the fuel pump.

Stuck hub 96 cherokee dana 30 axle shaft passenger side removal to replace the u joint. I put a 3 jaw puller on the hub and seperated the hub bearing assembly.

U-joint replacement Is there a way to replace just the u-joints in axle shafts of a 98 jeep grand cherokee

Changed my carrier bearing today. I now have a vibration that occurs at 35mph. I also still have a whining noise or what sounds like a bad wheel bearing. I'll admit to not marking the orientation of the drive shaft at the u-joint. My Ranger is a '97 supercab. This is the 4th carrier bearing replacement since I bought the truck 7 years ago. Today was the first time I replaced it. Any idea why I'm going through these bearings? Regarding the vibration, I'm thinking I'll have to rotate the u-joint 9


Well yes forst try rotating the carrier bearing 90 degrees, you might have to do this 3 times to get the positioning right.\015\012\015\012Next rangers tend to eat these bearings due to the angle of the front shaft and rear shaft being wr ... Ford Ranger
