Astro 7865 Ball Joint Service Tool & Master Adapter Set 7868 Review

Ball Joint Replacement Made Easy

IMG_20160512_190438989Ball joint replacement can be a scary task because many have poor luck pounding out the old ball joints.  With this simple, portable press made by Astro Pnuematics, changing rusted and froze ball joints is pretty easy.  Our test rig for this tool set was a 1999 Jeep XJ with 180,000 miles on it.  Let me tell you that half of the life of this rid was spent in the mud.  As we used the impact wrench on the Jeep, we commanded showers of sand and dirt that fell from the undercarriage.  We are confident that this tool can help you remove ball joints!  We ordered both kits to be sure we had the correct parts, but also to add to the dies we would have on hand for use in our floor press.


  • Heavy duty forged steel tool and set is excellent for removal/installation of press-fit parts such as ball joints, universal joint and truck brake anchor pins.
  • Set contains C-frame press, 3 receiver tubes sizes: 2-3/4″x3″, 2-1/4″x 2-1/2″ & 1-3/4″x2″, installation and removal adapters.
  • Set also includes 4-wheel drive ball joint service kit.
  • Allows service for 1967 thru current 1/2 and 3/4 ton 4WD vehicles having the Dana 44 front axle (found on Ford, GM, Dodge, IHC and Jeep vehicles)
  • Blow molded case for easy storage and transport
