Hi guys, so I'm working on putting a prorock 44 with dynatrac ball joins under my '13 jk and I'm trying to reinstall the steering knuckles. With the bottom so tight the knuckle doesn't want to turn I have a ~1/4 in gap at the top. Is this normal? Am I missing something?
thanks
tim

Thanks. Still hard to move and still that 1/4" gap at the top ball joint. I have not greased the joints yet so maybe that is the hard to move bit but the gap is what has me concerned.
thanks!

I just installed a new knuckle and had the same gap. Grease should close it up.
My concern is how hard they are to move.. Def not a good thing.

You may need to get a ball joint press and get that ball joint down on the upper C better?!?!

Do you guys suggest to use some Anti-Seize on the mating surfaces where the ball joints press into?

Just spoke with Dynatrac and the gap and tightness are 100% normal for there ball joints. Looks like i panicked for nothing but THANKS to everyone for there support!
