Those pickle forks/chisels are a JOKE. I use an actual ball jonit remover. It wedges itself on the bototm of the ball joint threads/nut, while other legs go on the boot like any other, but instead of ramming it in and forcing it out with teh angled forks, you turn a bolt on the end which actually spreads the jaws of the device open. WAY nicer on boots. Takes 30 seconds with no effort required other then a ratchet.


Something like this

If you look at the way it's made. it's rounded. it hardly pnches the boot. it forms around the boot and touches the actual joint inside the boot. from the bottom portion. The big difference is you don't have a wedge pounding squeezing the boot. This is a constant smooth pressure that leaves the boot perfect.

I fucked it over a few years back in a dirtbiking accident and it hasnt been the same since. Its progresivly been getting worse. Something about damaged cartlage and the muscle on the back of the leg isnt working properly causing the muscle to just "stop working" when I've been standing too long. Not the greatest for long days at work...

were you on a dirtbike with a loose front tire? maybe you were trying to wheelie while you were drunk? it just seems like you are dumb and this is why bad things happen to you.

sanded/primered/painted all the surface rust before the Kamloops winters wreack havoc on it, not 100% perfect match, but it's a lot better than exposed rust

Also finally debadged the trunk...always wanted to do it with my old Fox, looks a million times better....pics in the random pics thread in off-topic
