BallJoint Pressing

Post by Neo » Wed 11 Oct, 2017 7:01 am

Hi,
Does anyone know where I can get a new balljoint pressed into the rear Tie-Rod (Control Arm) on my ML (W163)?
Anyplace between Newcastle and Sydney would be useful.

Thanks for your help

Do you already have the balljoint ?

Any mech / Eng workshop should be able to do this for you.

If that control rod is anything like the ones on my W204 you need to buy the whole arm if there's a crook ball joint.
The rubber bushings can be replaced at the other end of the rod.
