Chassis Swap - A Frame Ball Joint

Replacing the A frame ball joint is a notoriously awkward job - especially without the use of a big press so I cheated and got hold a new one already in its housing.  The Gwyn Lewis product has the added advantage of being adjustable and greasable so although they are quite costly it should be much quicker to fit.

It arrived today (which was very efficient of Gwyn, as I think I only ordered it yesterday) with a few other bits from his product catalogue. These included a set of galvanised spring seats, galvanised spring retainers for front and back, and a pair of heavy duty turret rings.  The HD turret rings have longer captive bolts, which are necessary due to the thickness of the HD turrets I have bought.
