    Hi, just been under front of new "different" car and I notice 1 side of car ball joints are new, other side old .Doesn`t make sense to me. Does anyone know the no for the press set please, then I can do the other side to match. Thanks

    That is a good kit, I've one myself.
    Set it up,
    Pile on some pressure,
    Plenty of release oil and a bit of heat and your favorite hammer.... And pop goes the weasels!

    You should put a punch mark near the joint to show it’s been changed.
    3 changes think hub takes

    I don't like people much so this virus is excellent as far as I am concerned. I've always washed my hands so no problems there.
