Did this video help you?

Darin Werner: What size socket was used to hold the ball joint from spinning on guide link

Jim Kidd: I found this helpful. I was able to 'create' a ball joint remover from a number of common plumbing parts I found in the hardware store.

Juippi: Ei noita perämurikasta ole tarkoitettu nostettavaksi.

lanpartypro: Nice video, but for anyone else that may be watching..... NEVER use your torque wrench to break torque. (loosen the nut).

redcarsarasota: Excellent! I wouldn't abuse my torque wrench like that, plus they sell bushing tools on eBay. But thank you very much for showing the procedure, I need to do my E38. The last bit when you sped up the ball joint installation reminded me of a Star Trek episode called Wink of an Eye because of the audio all sped up. 

I'm right: Ty m8 for the help

لؤي الحيالي: v.good

gregory891: Nicely done video, some good tips. One thing that you really shouldn't do is use a torque wrench as a breaker bar - not good for an accurate torque wrench.

TheOriginalGooroo: dude... spend $10-$20 and get a proper breaker bar instead of abusing your torque wrench that is probably $60-$100 and is probably going to be out of calibration now...

Voodoo Melon: Very well done!

HP11208: nice

merlin0www: Yeah, except that none of the autozone tools seems to have fit the ball joints. At least the ones i tried.

mine1username: I'm not sure if you have an autozone where you're at, but they offer a loan-a-tool, where you by the tool and use it, but you bring it back and they just give you're money back to you. You can also choose to keep the tool if you want. I did this with the ball joint press tool. So really it's free to use the right tool, if you do the loan-a-tool route. Nice video! Great insight on this job.

bofessional: Excellent Write up! I just did my Front Control Arms and Thrust Arms Today! I was going to skip the rears for a while, but Now I'm GAME!

Drive In Drive Out: Awesome!
