As a paperweight. :) http://crazysmopar.com/tech_bjsocket.html claims the best way to remove the upper ball joint is with an impact gun. Another option is have a shop that works on springs and suspensions do it for you. Take off the control arm and bring the new ball joint and the control arm to them and pay them to R&R the ball joint. You can also have them replace the bushings at the same time. You can do the lower control arm bushings at the same. Thanks, Gary H. > -------Original Message------- > I think it does need a special Mopar socket.
