Pulled the EMPI ball joint wide 5 disc kit today. It didn't take as long as I'd anticipated-partly because I expected the worst and it went very smoothly. This is the left side.
I forgot to pull a shock bolt before I pulled the spindle but it's good now.
Passenger's side. All in all, very clean and an easy job to pull them off.
I've got a little work before I can replace the front spindles and brakes but with the car up in the air, I've got reason to get it done.
Pulling the front brakes turned out to be a good thing: The only parts I hadn't yet replaced were the ball joints. Three of the four were very wobbly and had torn boots.
Excellent time to replace them.
Also found a very slight leak in the brake master cylinder-which might be part of the problem with bleeding them. I think I'm going to pull it and have it rebuilt so that it's checked off.
The EMPI kit pulled, drained of fluid, cleaned and ready for packing.
