    Do you replace ball joints in pairs?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dwayne Madsen says:

    "HA! My dad used to say, "Good enough for the girls I go with." That is totally not why I came to this video; I was checking out the Soobby Ball Joint Puller. Stay safe!

    that plastic jug hanging in the background looks like the statue heads on Easter Island

    Where did you buy your tools?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ejay says:

    Subaru, they've always got to be different.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris boccia says:

    Just ordered thank you!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    Excellent demo, Eric. Trying to think of a way to make this tool is cool, but the price of steel around here is so high I can't make one of these for much less. I've seen guys use threaded rod, a short segment of pipe, and a small weld. Even that way, when you look at the hardware bill it is almost the same. I hate single application tools.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TaintedMojo says:

    Subaru seems to go out of the way to make their stuff a pain in the ass to work on

    Thank you very much friend I just ordered it by amazon I tried too much with other tools and I am not successful now I will wait three days for the article to arrive to see how it works for me

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P Harrah says:

    Thank you for the video, this worked great on the driver side but not so much on the passenger side… Threaded the tool onto the ball joint and foolishly tried to use my impact to make a quick job of it, now its the next day and the ball joint is still in the car! The threads ripped out of the cylinder on the tool and the ball joint. That's what happens when you try to go to fast kids! Live and learn I guess. 🙂 But thank you for introducing me to this option, didn't know that tool was available outside of the Matco/SnapOn trucks.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn Hamblin says:

    $27 ! They are proud of the double ended nut in can aren't they. 😁

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Resciniti says:

    Rocket surgery! Love it!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Quintin Toro says:

    Where can I get those ball joints?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Mann says:

    I have a question on the ball joint pinch bolt . Do you think 37315 pneumatic bolt breaker made by Mayhew would work on these bolts ? This along with big nasty might be a game changer ? Curious to see you do a review on this . I think 37316 is the 1/2 option .

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott ingle says:

    Those ball joints come out real easy with an air hammer. Bring out big nasty. Works even in the rust belt hit the edge with big nasty pop that out in seconds. Just another tip if you don't want to waste money on another tool.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jawojnicki says:

    Eric sorry about that mean comment that I left on your first video where you introduced to the puller 1.0. I didn't know that you mentioned in this video that it's useless without having a lift

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edwin Brewer says:

    Those TTX ball joints are so awesome. I don’t think I have ever been so excited about discovering a new line of parts! Love them. Some of them even come with press adapters. Super cool!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars johnaclark1 says:

    I bought this tool and tried it on a 2010 Forester. The threaded rod stripped out on the first try. It pulled it out a ways and then got tight and messed up the threads. I finally got it out, though. Did the second ball joint, with an axle nut to space out from where the threads were messed up on the rod and it only got half way before finishing off stripping out the forcing nut. So, now the threaded rod is trashed and the nut is trashed. I had to use just the adapter and a slide hammer to get it the rest of the way out. I like the Astro stuff Eric has recommended but this tool didn't hold up for me. The adapter went in the slide hammer & puller kit I have and the rest will likely end up in the trash unless I can get a new threaded rod, washer, and nut.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars leonardc22 says:

    TTX not TXT lol

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MaineiacNorth says:

    Yes, the dreaded Subaru pinch bolt. Not made for the Salt Belt. When I touch one of those, and if all goes well, or not……..I modify the original concept for a "Through Bolt" set up. Winterizing one Rig at a time! Love your videos Eric! From the Far Northeast-MaineiacNorth

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Tee says:

    I would have liked to see the new part installed.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rsx123 says:

    I just leave the lower nut in with the balljoint still in the control arm and just hit the control arm till it pops out.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Swink says:

    I love air tools, that was like a miniature jack hammer.

    I see Josh has turned his talents to mechanics. Did he do any other films besides the SandLot?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smeech says:

    Josh has a Honda hat on…. Solid dude.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carsrock1999 says:

    I made that "Astro" tool years ago for less than $20 in pipe & all-thread from the hardware store 😐

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    All them giggily bits okay were done lmfao

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Great job. Great ad for "Not A Sponsor."

    Thanks for sharing

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SubieTech 1.6L says:

    I've never seen this tool i always just use hammers and pry bars

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliffy B says:

    What happens when the subie has an aftermarket ball joint with different threads?😁

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave buchanan says:

    Does anyone else see the white monster on the blue pole in the background

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Gouin says:

    Hi Eric, man i really like your diagnostic tools. Theyre invaluable. After watching your videos, i ordered a new scan tool. Mine was about ten years outdated. You can tell a good mechanic by looking at his toolbox and tools. Keep up the awsome videos. Youre the MAN! Rev.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars patrick hallyburton says:

    i love when replacement parts come with new hardware!!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    Is there a joke I missed about "NAPA not a sponsor"?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray M says:

    I did sense a slight bit of disappointment on Josh's face. I have a feeling he wanted to use Big Nasty and go full MG42 on that sucker 😏👍

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wanna Ride Bikes says:

    I was told to get a pressure test on my steering pump and lines. I asked a mechanic to see if he could do it. He said there is no such thing but I knew there was. He also said my steering pump was bad. On a Ford Taurus the right side of the rack and pinion it does have issues the boot has fluid in it then bad rack however. The pressure line was loose so the o rings were janky we replaced them now steers easy but still wandering. But for now steering works. Any hoot. Any idea how to pressure test my steering a diy thingy. Maybe

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leonard Contarino says:

    I just bought one of those ball joint pullers. It solved a lot of fustration in 5 minutes.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave says:

    I would say awesome Wicked cheap tool Mr. O, but??? But the Mrs. is right behind me.And No! My son has an 09 subby/Subbie(I don't know) that may need that particular utensil in the near future. That worked great getting that outta there, Full beans. btw I'm sure alot of folks are still waiting for the phone to ring

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John M says:

    I love Subaru, but the effing ball joints are the death of me

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dirtyharry70585 says:

    Astro not a sponsor?

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russ M says:

    I watched this video and realized that its rare to be positioned into a field you want to work in and get mentored by such an outstanding person with the experience Dr. O has. I personally had a few such mentors from time to time before and I really wish I could thank those people more now.
