Ball Joints

Hi all, I am after some advice for purchasing and installation of upper and lower ball joints for my HR disc brake front end, I know 555's are the best quality but are very hard to come by now. What other brands should I be looking for? I have seen a couple of different lower types as well some are smooth around the circumferance that is pressed into the swing arm and some have a knurled finnish, which type is better?

Cheers Jim

Petrol sniffers!!!

Mongrels siphoned the tank in my VT wagon last night-a full tank too! Scratched a little of my paint getting the fuel flap open, but not too bad - should buff off.

Luckily they didn't steal the commodore or my Gemini as they are on the driveway cos there's no room in the garage with the FJ!

So I've got a lockable cap now. I suppose with the fuel prices going up this may be more of an occurrence.

Sorry - I just felt like whinging! I hate thieves!

ADAM

I remain persistant in the fact that it was not me in most of the "Modifications", thread that you have all been arguing with,i have not said that ABS is in any way unsafe,(check the comments with my name!) simply my whole point of the first post, was to do mods yourself with out engineering or approval can leave your arse exposed,as their is always the possibility of incorrect installation, as you have agreed with by the posts about wheel nuts and brake pads. Irrelevant of the product.

Off topic (as usual)

I recently worked, up until a month ago for a temporary fencing operator (back yard dodgy prick) Anyway, we had a falling out and I left. Yesterday I received a speeding fine in the mail regarding an offence that took place in a car belonging to him. It seems that this prick has nominated me FALSELY as the driver of said car! I have just written a letter Rebuking this fine and stated that I have been wrongfully nominated as the driver. I just wanted to ask if anyone here knows where I stand in this matter, and how this system works?

i just sold a blue 308 to my cousins mate for $350. I bought it for 550 on an engine stand, it came with a trimatic, extractors, edelbrock performer inlet manifold, holley 600 quaddy and electronic ignition. Not having any trustworthy info about it, i decided to put the 253 and the trimatic into the wagon for economic reasons. I kept the electronic ignition, holley and extractors all earmarked for the wagon. Not having the time money or decent environment to rebuild a motor i never got around to stripping the 308 down to investigate everything, which became a sort of "need to" as the valley wasnt sitting right.
