Popping Front Lower Balljoints Out

Post by R13NGY on Fri Nov 09, 2012 7:58 pm

Everybody seems to have trouble with it some time or another, and every time somebody brings up the we-todd-did method of using a 1/2" drive ratchet to pop the balljoint, nobody seems to understand how it works.

So, I put together something for everybody to reference later on and hopefully we'll never have to see another post about how to pop a lower balljoint.

Set up the jack and jack up the lower control arm until you can get the ratchet in b/w the knuckle and the LCA.



Insert the 1/2" drive ratchet so that it's as square as possible to the surfaces it's sitting on. This is to ensure that the ratchet won't flop out prematurely.

Front side - hopefully everybody can see how the ratchet sits. The perspective is a little skewed and blocked
