Ball Joint Puller/remover Help Please

Recommended Posts

That's one of the toughest rod ends I've ever had the (dis) pleasure to pull apart.

And they often fail, just to add insult to injury.

 

I have a relatively generic Old Forge puller that I wedge on there, get a bit of

pressure against it,

then whack on the side of the arm- that usually does it.

 

If it was mine, I would replace it while I was at it...

I purchased this tool for working on my classic mini, but have since used it on numerous other cars. Very stout. I use it with my electric impact wrench. Works like a charm and does not damage anything.

+1 with this style of tool. Never failed for me on all kinds of joints on all kinds of cars. Even used it as a small puller on other things.

I've not had much luck with the long style puller - too wobbly. The shorter item in the pictures above are easier to control, but I remember winding on a LOT of pressure and wondering whether the tie rod or the tool would pop first. I'd wear safety glasses and be VERY careful.
