1990 Camry CV and ball joint replacements

Postby Amaroq206 » Tue Aug 02, 2016 12:42 pm

So my parts are being delivered today for my DD. I got under the car last week, already knowing I needed to replace the drivers side axle.

I found out that my passenger side needed replaced and my ball joint on the passenger side is destroyed. Surprised I haven't wrecked yet.

I've never done this sort of repair before, and while I do have a full chilton for it, figured I'd ask on here if there is anything that I should look out for or know before I start the job. My trooper is still not registered, so need to make sure I get this down in a night.

Youtube the crap out of it man... Get an idea what special tools you might need. What size axle nut socket and stuff like that. Watch several different videos, more than one way to skin a cat. And some guys will give up hints for problems to watch for during the job.

I've never worked on a Camry. Recently did wheel bearings on my daughter's corolla but it's an 06. THOUGHT I had a handle on wheel bearings... the Corolla threw me a curve and Youtube saved the day.

Don't guess you're in The Falls? I've got a lift, press, 4 BIG hammers... way too many pullers..

Not sure what you mean by the falls, unless you are in Idaho and mean twin.

Parts came in yesterday, but I had dinner plans with the girl. Maybe I'll get to it today. I'll try to watch some videos if I have free time at work. Skeptical about driving 30 miles for work in this ball joint though. There's a decent amount of vertical movement in it, kind of knocking when I go over bumps.

Wichita Falls. I keep forgetting I just have Texas listed and not the city.
