Lower front ball joint

Recommended Posts

This may have been worked over before but is there a cross reference for the front lower ball joint? Or is it a Lotus only part?

Thanks in advance

Press them out. Just push from above the arm. As it's you I fully expect a die to be made that presses on the lip of the ball joint not the ball itself. I used a big socket to do that task.

Oh, and do not try and press them in with a vice. At least not with one vice, you can start with one but when it breaks at (I guess) 5 tons of force you'll need a second one.

It was after that event that I bought a proper hydraulic press.
