Re: Upper ball joint R&R - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Word to the wise: Grease NEW balljoints for longer life.
I recently purchased new balljoints from a popular site sponsor. Good brand too. Both balljoints had about 1 cc of grease in the boot (not even where the ball rotates). I wiped them clean and lubed with a high quality wheel bearing grease. Ditto for the new outer tie rod ends I got at the same time.
When I think about all the ball joints I've replaced over the years... not happy.
