Rear Ball-Joint for Boge Load Leveler, Range Rover

It's out, yea!

Triumphant pose... 

I won a shirt...

Hard to see in pix, but the joint is completely worthless, the ball is so loose in there, it is knocking up and down, and all around. No wonder the thing clunked over every bump.

The new joint aside the old...

I used a sawzall and cut the flanges on both side so the press would have something to stand on...

See those two long bolts holding the pieces together?  They were seized in the middle part, hammering, heat, WD40, much use of a air wrench to go in, and out, still ruined one, and had to replace it.

after this, I took arm to a local shop with a torch and a 20 ton press, it took both to get the old joint out.
