    To be honest,now you are so far in,you should really replace the ball joints then they will last for years.I have just bought another 2.5 with 12months MOT on it and it was a death trap the tester who passed it wants stringing up by his dangly bits. front pads 1mm caliper leaking flexis corroded 1 set of ball joints older than me (72) and I havent looked at the rear yet

    I may just wait and buy a decent press once I'm back to work and get on with other jobs for now I'm more worried about the lining up bit I've I do both ball joints I think that maybe a bit technical

    If the oil seals dont leak now, the alignment is correct. to maintain this "DO NOT TOUCH THE SPLIT HEX NUT AT THE BOTTOM PIN" This is what sets the alignment. if you dont move it, you have no need to reset the centre hight

    One of the seals did leak when I took the cv joint out but as soon as I put that shaft back it was ok I'm replacing both seals anyway I don't have to undo that big nut then to do the joints
