How to Remove a Ball Joint Safely - Harbor Freight Ball Joint Separator Tool Review
Safely and easily remove a ball joint from a car or truck's suspension and steering components. This video reviews the Harbor Freight Ball Joint Separator tool, item #99849, and highlights the do's and don'ts when performing this job. 1. Lubricate the tool to prevent wear and breakage due to friction. 2. Do not use an air impact gun with this tool. A hand wrench or ratchet is more than sufficient for applying the necessary force so as not to damage the tool or potentially create a dangerous situation. 3. Do not necessarily tighten the tool so far as to pop the ball joint loose on its own. This can potentially result in a violent and dangerous outcome, not to mention that it can easily over stress and damage the tool. As per the video, use this tool in conjunction with the traditional method of hitting the steering knuckle with a hammer.
