    Hi all, is there a step by step process for changing them aswell as the ball joints. I've spent 3 hours doing one side. The ball joint just wouldn't come out. Doing the other side tomoz and didn't want to take so long.

    if your really struggling mate. take the pinch bolt out of the balljoint, put the wheel back on, and lower car to ground. ;)

    Use a ball joint seperator & a lump hammer

    If you are struggling you probably dont have a decent enough balljoint splitter TBH, they come apart pretty easy with a decent size splitter and a decent sized hammer.

    You could soak it in some penetrating fluid overnight though to help matters a little.

    and if you're still struggling use a bigger hammer
