a ball joint press that you can borrow from your local parts store and a little bit of luck. I had to heat one of mine too to get it out even with the press.Hey guys I want to change the ball joints on my lude, can you guys tell what I need to change them I have the ball joint already I want to start from the front to rear. Please help!
The kits from autozone don't seem to fit. I purchased a Honda specific kit off amazon but have yet to actually use it.what did you use to press it in? will a ball joint press kit from autozone work? or did you use the tool in this thread? http://www.preludepower.com/forums/showthread.php?t=355302&highlight=ball

I can get them out no issue. My concern is putting them in without damaging the balljoint. Thats why I got the kit.NOPE. they definitely don't. it works to press them in, but the cup isn't big enough to press the old one out into it. when I noticed it actually said Honda on the box I was real annoyed.
i mean the autozone adapter kit for honda. anyway, this clarification isn't worth this much trouble lol. the clamp works just fine. do you know what brand the honda kit you got is?As I said above, the basic c clamp style kit (same as an autozone kit...but cheaper because i got it at harbor freight...) in conjunction with the honda kit I purchased off amazon....
Which you said did not work
I'm too lazy to do quotes via mobile
Jv, were you able to find them just doing the catagorized search or did you just enter the part numbers somewhere? I looked just out of curiousity and can only find the whole knuckle and then ball joint boots seperate.I've been wondering this for a while now, I feel like I'm missing something. I've read this before and in the disclaimer and also post #24 it says that you can only get the ball joints from Honda by purchasing the whole knuckle. I tried entering the part number for the ball joint kits on majestic Honda and I was able to add them to the cart and checkout (I didn't submit the order).
If someone can clarify if these can be purchased separately or not it would be greatly appreciated
