Default Wishbone ball joint

I noticed on 106parts.com that you can buy just the ball joint?

How the feck do you get the old ones out without buggering the wishbone itself?

Anyone actualy done it?

Heres the link:

you can do it but its not worth it tbh by the time you have smashed out the old ball joint you could have had a new lower arm in lol
i think you may need to press them out not sure tho

Arms are £60+ each from my motor factor.

Ball joints are £10each... saving £100, thats why i was interested.

Im changing all the bushes on the arm, but the arm its self is nice and straight. Just want to fit a new ball joint to make it nice and tight again

Ive seen them Knocked out with a Hammer before and it didnt do any damage to the arm either think they just pushed into place with great deal of force.

by the time you have nocked/pressd all the old bushes in/out you might as well have got a new arm i think the arms were 30 each for mine from euro car parts.

I just put them in a vice and belt them out with a hammer. Takes a while, but get there in the end.

To put them back in, I have a bit of steel and a giant socket that I can use in the vice, to press the new joint in.

but the reason most arms are so expensive from motor factors are cause they are QH which are just over priced in my opinion, and delphi ones which are actually o/e specced ones, and delphi supply o/e ones to peugeot and citroen

but it depends on what you change as to which is cheaper, cause the new wishbone coulds still be the cheaper option

Hey guys, I just bought a furio. It has an advisory on the lower suspension control arm. When cornering with power its knocks a bit like a duff drive shaft sound. I guess time for a whole new arm.

gdwelsh: How easy was it to fit a new one? any special tools needed etc?

cheers
