I am going to be replacing the right front ball joint on my dad's 87 190 2.3 next week. It broke while driving in a parking lot last night (luckly not on the road). I have removed the control arms off my 16V before so I am sure I can handle the job. I know I will need to get the ball joint pressed out, and in. The last time I did this it was a real pain. I am sure it will be again but if anyone has any tips or advice on making this job a little easier I would like to hear them. Thanks for any help. I have checked around and it looks like the ball joint will cost $25.

I usually knock out the old ball joints with a BIG punch and hammer. To get the new ones back in I use the factory tool...Always look at the boots on the ball joints of the 190E's when doing any kind of service on them. If the boots are swolen there is rust in them and they are shot.
