Changing lower ball joints
Hi I just joined the forum today and I have a SLK200. I'm into classic and sports cars and also have an XKE of 1967 vintage that I am restoring and doing all the work myself.
I need to change the front lower ball joints on the SLK as I got an advisory note last month when I went to get new tyres fitted ( Yes a main dealer in the UK can be price competitive on tyres!) I had Sport Contact Continental tyres fitted and much prefer the look of these than the original Pirelli's
Does anyone have any experience of changing the front lower ball joints, are there any snags to watch out for? and does anyone have an illustration from a parts manual they could e-mail me?
