Wholesale Suspesion at Penrith Paul.
I believe Racedirector got his done there pretty cheap.
I could grab the arms on Friday night and drop them in for you if you wanted.

Second Wholesale Suspension, great bunch of guys. Anyone in Western Sydney that doesn't have a huge press should check them out....

Just been quoted from Pedders at $20.00 ea to press in. This is with Steering Knuckles off car and old ball joints removed. I think I will go with them.


Most Pedders outlets will fit the b/j's free if you buy them from them and you have removed the old ones......MOST....not all...depends on the franchisee.

No They wanted $76.00 ea plus $10.00 pressing as long as the old ones were out, $172.00 a pair.

Bursons Balljoints $27.00 ea plus $20.00 ea at Pedders to press, Total $74.00 for the pair, save $98.00. I'm Happy.

$76 each :shock: .....they were never that dear from Ford......I'll have to ask a mate of mine....he's a Pedders franchisee.......he does look after me though...I send some work his way reasonably regularly......He's a good bloke...tells it how it is, no frills, no bullsh!t, down the line straight up.......but I won't use Pedders bushes....they crap.

They come pre greased with the correct ammount.
No need to put anymore it. It'll just cause the grease to pop the boot of.

Don't go overboard, as the boots will pop or split once in the car if there's too much.
That's why you remove as much as you can with a clean cloth, and work the new grease into the joint.
I don't know if it's just me, some joints I've bought have had some very suspect looking grease pre installed, hence the repack - I figure moly graphite grease couldn't do any harm.
Opinions ???
