    Lower Ball Joint

    Have a busted boot on a lower ball joint. The joint itself doesn't have any damage to it, been keeping grease on it. Its a press-in. Anyway to fix it without a headache?

    lol pop it and install a new boot other than that duct tape has so many uses. I saw on mythbusters they lifted a car with it. If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape. If it wont move and it should, WD40. Anything else, you have an electrical problem. lol
    good luck with it.

    You need to remove the spindle off the ball joint. Then you can replace the boot.
