    Ball Joint Question

    I have to replace the upper ball joints on my 04 GX 470. I found that MOOG sells one that is greasible. My questions is what kit, cup, do I need to press these in. I have access to a press but I am not sure that we have the right cup to press them and I don't want to tear or damage the balls...

    Front End Refresh Parts List

    Any other suggestions? I have the F-N-R / R-N-F clunk and my original axles are starting to sling a bit of grease. Figured I would nip it in the bud with new axles, flanges, and bearings all in one shot. Also, I have two torn ball joint gaskets and the freeway wander is starting to get...

    Ball joint breakage?

    See a thread on a UK forum about a guy who had the ball joint next to the steering pitman arm sheer. Then along comes another guy who had exactly the same problem. It seems the ball joint dries out and under certain conditions the joint fails. Both failures happened at low speed manoeuvring...
