Ball joints

Postby lee771 on Thu May 11, 2017 3:48 pm

Hi guys
Since i washed My truck it sounds like I'm constantly running over a box of hamsters the front end where's the best place to get ball joints from? Seen some cheap ones on the bay but don't want to buy naff and have to do again in a month or so it's for my 2.0 96
Thanks
Lee

Mine were from eurocarparts too and not had any problems with them yet, every couple of days they have a "special" 30% off and if you're lucky sometimes it's upto 53%

Well drove my girl in to the mechanics block at work today the guys who teach Inot there said no problem will be done by the end of the day.

Got a call at just before 12 asking me to go "have a look" turns out the good cheap buy from ecp are the wrong ones bottom ball joints were no issue and went straight on but top ones are the 4 bolt type were my car is on the change over and needs 3 bolt long story short my new ball joints will be here in the morning but I have to leave my girl on the ramp front end in bits!!
I swear I could hear her crying as I left to come home drive just don't look right with out her sat Out side my living room window

Yeah mine are 3 bolt ones as well. Think the ecp site said check which fitment you have as well. Never mind you can take em back.
