LR90 Salisbury rear axle A-frame removal...


Recommended Posts

I have a Salisury rear axle on my 90 and its time the A-frame ball joint was replaced, I've got the nut off the bottom, now clueless as to how to get the actual ball joint out of the axle housing. Going by the rest of the vehicle it will be rusted solid in its wee hole, anyone got any idea's as to how to get it out, tried jacking/lifting/bashing and heating... doesn't want to move.

Cheers

Leave the nut in place, just a few threads is fine, hang the weight of the axles from it (jack it up under the chassis and remove the shocks) using a suitable drift and a mini-sledge/big lump hammer smack the hell out of the end of the joint, it should come free this way...

And hit you smartly on the head!

Sorry couldn't resist.

Try to get an assistant. Remove the nut. Wedge a crowbar / stout pipe anywhere you can get some decent leverage, get your assistant to put all his weight on it, crawl underneath and belt the A-frame on the ball joint end. Usually one carefully aimed blow shows it who's boss.
