Never Replace A ‘Pressed-In’ Ball Joint More Than Once.
For driver safety, it is recommended that a ‘press-in’ ball joint is only replaced on one occasion and that any subsequent repair should use a fully assembled wishbone arm.
It is important to note that ball joints cannot be indefinitely replaced. Repetitive dismantling/ pressing operations significantly affect both the diameter and roundness of the arm body hole - where the ball joint is pressed in. This is especially the case when the arm body material is sheet steel.
