Funny you mention that, but I tried last night. Everything went smooth. The all bolt off for the sway bar, the lower bolt for the strut, the 3 bolt on the top of the strut, and it came down to the upper ball joint bolt. Got the ball joint balt off.. The instruction says to "hit it with a hammer so that the vibration will pop the ball boint out and will enable me to get the strut out. We tried everything...The thing would not pop off..Hit it with a hammer after lubing it with PB Blaster, tried fitting a tie rod puller-failed, nothing....After 3 hours trying to figure ***** out, I quit....What did i do wrong?
I have a 2005 ford f-150 and I already got it installed at a local Monro Mufflers for $100 off the books. So we both won in a way. The technician got some extra pocket cash for Valentines day and I got my truck leveled at a reasonable price. Thanks. For future reference, would you able to tell me of that reputable shop in ct?
