In this video I show you the process I use to replace a front lower ball joint on a 2002 Honda Odyssey. Pretty easy task assuming you all ready have a ball joint press. -Enjoy!

    Q modelo es la odyssey

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Theo End says:

    Hehe! Love it

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gfd1166 says:

    The script on the box actually translates to "Ball Joint"… I cheated & used Google Translate.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike M says:

    My shop told me I have to change the whole control arm, rather than just the ball joint. I have 2013 Odyssey EXL, anyone have insight?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pkaronis1 says:

    Are the new Odysseys able to accept the 555 ball joints, or do you HAVE to buy the entire control arm???

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ridley says:

    It'd be really cool if, just before you start these, you show how to tell that the ball joint is bad.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars global solidarity says:

    So, ah, the factory ball joint did not have a snap ring; or did y'all just skip that step?
    I'm confused.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JimboB says:

    The bottom of that spindle may not be cracked but it sure as hell looks like it.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marandal says:

    Thank you for showing me this! helps alot 👍

    Love this guy fun to watch

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W Pro says:

    Is it true, this job can not be performed on a 2011 Odyssey?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 3GenerationsRacing says:

    The last Honda Odyssey I had my dad and I built. It was a 78 off-road buggy with a wicked fast 250cc, low air pressure rear suspension and the poorest excuse for coil overs in the front. But man did it fly (landings were atrocious) 😂😂😂

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars O'Neal says:

    The arm looks cracked

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Uly1 says:

    Gravy video of a gravy ball joint. Gotta love the gravy, keeps the lites on and the mrs happy…

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adventures with TTFNCachn says:

    Allot of DIY are going the route of the full control arm, instead of pressing in and out a ball joint. As you may know, I'm not a fan of Napa parts. Over the years though, there quality of parts and service has dropped. I never really had any love for O'Reilly's because when they came in they took over smaller auto parts stores in town that I liked and completely destroyed them. However regardless of where you go we will find Dorman and Moog parts, even in the dealerships.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert hawkins says:

    wow, that's a nice looking ring on your finger. really nice design. my girl friend is hoping I give her a ring just like that. LOL

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Kim says:

    Japanese letters read Boru Jointo.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Salatiello says:

    Eric, I didn't see a grease fitting on that ball joint. For permanently sealed ball joints, have you ever tried using a grease injector needle to get grease into the boot, then seal it with RTV or liquid electrical tape?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars asghar ali says:

    what is part Number? 555 ? thanks

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason May Draw says:

    Great video. Got into my project to find out that my ball joint is built into my control arm. It can't press out. LOL! Just ordered new arms. Keep up the good vids

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars blautens says:

    I have that Astro ball joint set…as long as you lube the threads it works great. Never understood why some people give it bad reviews.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodney Smith says:

    What symptoms lead you to doing this video?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fredy A says:

    Has anyone attemp to do it this fantastic way using floor jacks? Clearance issues?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hondaslave1342 says:

    I always watch and wait for you to drop a tool. I don't think I found one yet thank you for the videos

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lloyd dailey says:

    you forgot to grease the ball joint !

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

    I agree Eric The Mevoteck Parts are great quality parts @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

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

    I agree napa chassis parts have gone down hill they suck i agree ncp line just junk different boots or threads or they never fit @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

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

    Good Work Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jamey Barisoff says:

    so that control arm tool did you buy it or make it? and if you bought it could you put a link to it, I'm 16 and I work in a shop at my college and we have been looking for a tool like this forever and haven't anything.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vicente gumataotao says:

    I've changed left & right cv axels but now there's a clucking noise. Every thing is tight and torqued. I sounds like a a ball joint. Is it possible to damage the ball joint?
