WTR: W123 Ball Joint Extractor

I'm trying to line up a ball joint press, ball joint extractor, and a spring compressor. I've been sitting on my parts for the front end over winter and now I'm rarin ready to go to get this done so I can throw some new tires on the 81 and hopefully drive her soon! If you have one for rent PM me! Thanks!

You don't need a spring compressor to do ball joints on a 123. Remove the spindle, turn it upside down in a vise. Pound out the old ball joint with a big drift. Then take your new lemfoerder ball joints and remove the boots. Autozone rental ball joint tool will press the new ones in. Reinstall the boot. And you're done.
