1996 SL2
Default Re: Changing a Front Hub/Bearing on an S-Series (with pictures)

Anyone know where to order just the balljoint dust boot for a 96 SL2??? I'm having no luck finding.

Update: I found THIS thread to be very helpful...including part numbers. Seems a generic boot is adequate for both tierod ends and balljoint. One tip was NOT to use pickle fork to separate lower control arm.. just use a crowbar or other instead:

Use a long crow bar, wedge it on top of the LCA and below the sway bar.. then put a lot of force/stand on the end and it should pop the stud out.
PS: Nothing like a quick post to assure that hours of fruitless searching immediately morph into a search hit. LOL

Thanks.
