I do plang on doing the work myself. I will also be doing the axel shaft U joint at the same time since the bearing caps are about to fall off. My girlfriend will be helping/teaching me how to do the ball joint. She I a Construction mech in the Seabees. She has done a few balljoints but it was many many years ago. I also have a TSM and three other repair books and i have always done all my own work on my jeeps. But if you have any pointers that would be great. Thanks for all the help Rockrollin you have been very helpfull in lots of my isssues.,
NAPA has the socket for the spanner nut at the top balljoint. Part #278-2030
Your service manual has the procedure to get the wheelbearing hub/rotor off.
The Napa hub told me six days to order the socket. That was on the thursday before my saturday project, so I was under the gun.
I read this as manual locking hubs, hence the link.
Once those are removed the TSM is the way to go
