Overall Rating for Astro Pneumatic 7865 Ball Joint Press Service Tool w/ 4-Wheel Drive Adapters
Ball Joint Press 7865
By Matthew from Big Horns of Wyoming on October 4, 2015
Lube up the press screw for an easier job.
Also tricky to get the cups to sit just right.
It will still take a large hammer to complete dis- and reassembly.
But without this press it would be hellish.
I know because I have done a GM 10 bolt front axle without a press before I got this tool.
Don't try it.
Another tip; a plumbers torch to gently heat up the steering knuckle alternated with liquid wrench soakings makes short work of ball joint, pitman arm, and tie rod end removal.
Plenty of adapter choices
