Re: Front upper ball joint replacement

Thanks again for the advice all. I like to do a lot of things myself but i don't have the tools or the patience to do something like this, so to a shop it will go. I will have to talk to them and see what they say about working on this. Id rather be safe than sorry to make sure that they can do something like this beforehand.

Oh cool, so maybe I can just get that and call it a day? The part does not specifyif its for the left or right... I assume that it works for either side if i wanted to replace both while im at it?

Re: Front upper ball joint replacement

If you're handy it is a much easier job than replacing just the ball joint to relace the whole UCA.

it's typically the first place I look. I have also used ebay for a lot of parts, but usually still shop around. you would be suprised on how close advanced auto parts stores are priced. usually a bit higher, but sometimes the convenience and immediate availability is worth it.

glad i could help
