  • HICAS ball joint

    My rear HICAS ball joints are toast and I have extra Energy Suspension bushings I'd like to replace them with. I could get the ball joints for 45 bucks a piece but I figured the ES option would be better and cheaper.

    Would a pittman puller work on this ball joint? I took the c-clip off and tried lightly hitting it with a hammer but it didn't budge. How do I get this thing out?

    Here's what's going in after I get the ball joint out. I'll be cutting the bushing in half to get it in. Any thoughts?

    If they keep wearing out you can always go with some spherical COM bearings from Midwest Control Products. Looks like the ~30mm diameter bushings like all the others. Then you just need a balljoint shank, which are for some reason not that common, but I imagine they're out there somewhere.
