    Torque and Washers

    Ok. I'm a retired Master Mechanic on a very limited Budget. I only used these Ball Joints because of income. With that said these will work for normal use. (smooth roads and not a lot of Bumps). The Washers are to Set the Taper of the Ball Joint into the Spindle. The torque for this is 70 Ft.lbs. The nut that comes with this didn't hold. It stripped out. Had to use a Thread Chaser on the bj shaft. recommend using the original Nut to set the shaft. After doing tha the Washers are used to set the Height of the nut for a positive engagement of the Cotter Pin. Always use SAE Torque Values on any Fastener that does not come with a Tightening Spec. Example. The 1/4 inch bj Fasteners are 90 to 120 inch lbs. (or divide by 12 for Ft.lbs) When your done don't forget to Grease the Ball Joint thru the Supplied Fitting. Good luck and happy Wrenching !

    Pros: Easy to install

    Cons: Not nearly as Heavy Duty as OEM

    Not that hard to install

    3 of 3 people found this helpful

    Several manuals stated on the install, follow the instructions that come with your kit. Still wondering why there are 4 larger washers that come with this kit? Only need one at most. Suggested torque on the small nuts and bolts that hold the thing in, would be just great? DON'T go over 10 ft lbs our you will have to go buy some more also. Most manuals say to drill out the original rivets, forget that. Get a hand held grinder and do it that way. Be steady with the grinder, and then us a punch to knock them out. Other then that? Seems to be working great, now that it is on. As replacement parts go, this was not that hard to work with. If, they just told you how.

    Pros: Install went fairly well

    Cons: Zero Instructions
