Here’s a photo of a new upper ball joint. This one wasn’t machined properly so it’s going back. I’m also concerned however with the dark blue color. Both ball joints have this color. To me, it looks like was overheated.
Is it usable?
Are the rubber boots in the kit worth using or should I use these instead?
I’ve tried to get the rubber boot in the kit to sit in the lip of the upper control arm and then secure with tie wire but the rubber is just too thick.
