anyone know how to R&R the ball joint boot...

Recommended Posts

on the front the wheel carrier (not the tie rod ball joint boot). i messed it up a while ago when i first replaced the stock springs for h&Rs. well, i kinda rigged it so the boot is partially sealing so that it is not completely exposed.

couldn't find any instructions on alldatadiy.com

I do not know if you guys used the porsche ball joint tool. If not then it is well worth the $120 investment. Aside from not tearing boots, it makes disassembly effortless.

You might try the junk yards for replacement arms, control rods, etc. You can usually get them for $100-$200.

I wish I had followed your (and others') advice about the ball joint tool. I didn't, and now I've got to deal with the consequences. Fortunately, I only messed up one side. I'm hoping the rubber cement will hold up for a while.

I don't see any reason to swap out the radius arm unless and until the boot fails and the ball joint gets trashed.
