Yeah, sounds good. I have so many tools I forgot I had some of them. I was trying to remove my doors and I used a very large straight blade screw driver with a shop towl on it so I didn't scratch anything. I was looking for something in one of my boxes for another project and low and behold I had a #50 Torx sitting right there. (DAH!)

Thanks,

I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions either a good cheap mechanic in the area or if you've done this, how hard was it? Or , if you really wanna help, you could come help me do it.. i'll buy the beer. Anyways, any response would be helpful, thanks
I've turned a wrench or two over the years. I'll help you with that if you help me with my top and other mods that I need 4 hands instead of 2. I'm in NRH where are you?

delalto23 Replacing ball joints isn't that hard. It's a little time consuming but pretty simple. Since you said you're no big mechanic I'm sure you don't have all the tools you need to simplify the job. You can go to an autozone and ask what tools you need to replace the joints and when they tell you, you can just get what you don't have. Like I said its not hard just a little time consuming and a few beers lol. What kind of jeep is it and where do you live?
