Tech Note 2: Before Removing
Before removing your old ball joints, you MUST clean out dirt and crud from the area between the ball joint and edge of the steering knuckle counterbore before placing the Ball Joint Receiver in position. The Receiver must be able to seat against the steering knuckle. Failure to remove any packed in material will result in major tool damage!

Safety Note
Using any type of press can be dangerous due to the forces applied to both the tools and parts. Always wear eye protection. Most workplace safety has to do with having some mechanical experience and plain common sense. If you do not know how to safely work on your vehicle, have the work performed by a professional automotive technician!
