well in the rain under a car i decided to replace the drag link at night by my usual spot light...(more ongoing drizzle than rain but wtfachizzle)
so i got the inner tie rods of with my $12 splitter lol
get the idler arm side off with the ball joint splitter borrowed from wurzel (sont read on dave- sad story ahead)
and feeling happy to remove the steering arm side joint of the drag link. i knew it was going to be bad as there is no boot left, just caked on grease and dirt.
crc it and scrape off the crud... let it soak. try the spliter- no joy.
try shocking it hot with taps from the hammer.no joy.
try using the ball joint splitter- no joy it broke!(sorry dave- will get you a new one one day)
ftied a 3 arm puller, 100mm one and a 60mm one- couldnt get them in there so decided to try and remove steering arm from the steering box...... no fing joy either.
so now i soaked with more crc and gave up... then it stoped drizzling wtf!(only on my misadventures)
long of the short... how do i get this last draglink rod out?????
there is no room between x member and the top to hammer it out (who cares if i smash it a new drag links going in any way and idler arm)
spliter isnt doing jack- or maybe its cause it was 145pm and i got sick of smashing it with a hammer and annoying my neighbour... hi too cause i heard you yelling
either help on advice or come over and smash it out for me.... grrrrr
or actually GRRRRRRRRRR
now ive had a couple of jd, im in a happy place, just want to get this done. not giving me confidence to do the lca bushes ..... GRRRRR
