my car needs ball joints my front end is clunking real bad.. i want to rebuild the whole front end but time and money is a issue (who didnt see that one coming). anyway what are the best ball joints to go with?
Hey man, it is pretty easy. It took me an entire afternoon. I bought all Moog parts from Napa near me. they gave me a discount for buying all of it. I didnt buy poly bushings becuase they will be noisey (car will sound like crap) and they bind. The moog bushings are great. You DEF should make an apointment with a shop to install the bushings in the control arms for you so there is no downtime. Dont forget the centerlink as well to replace. My car feels great now, tight as hell
Just some flat metal that you can bend up and install with a clamp.
Any thin aluminum sheet can be made into a shield.
Just divide the space between the exhaust or downpipe or header and the bushing you want to protect in half with a sheet of aluminum. Air gap between the components will dissipate the heat and the bushing will live.
I like the Moog replacement bushings.
Had some live beyond 50K daily driven miles without a shield on them.
