From my experienced, I need to use both of these tools.

this one to remove upper joint


and this one to remove lower joint
Oh.. really? i thought can use any1 of that :embarassed:


but from the half cut, mechanic also knock or hammer out the figure 8 and the control arm out.
unless buying new, the figure 8 and control arm is come separately.

me2kimi and D7zul, do you guys DIY to repair your SS?

nope.. i planning on getting the SS.. so, what i share is from info i gather :wink:

Yloon, so far I think nobody repair the SS thing. They just replace with another used part.

Zul, yup still using it.
