I replaced the upper balljoints and the shocks on my truck, that helped but it is still a bit bone rattling, I realize now that I should have done the lowers at the same time, I would like to replace the lowers, but if I use a fork I will ruin the good upper pair, Question: Can
anyone suggest a decent economical set of front end pullers? Thank you, Easy

Use some white grease on the pickle-fork. This will keep the boot from tearing.

I have rebuilt many front ends over the years and it works. Can be a little messy, but it saves the boots.
