Just asking to make sure before I buy them and if they will rub.. I can get a new set of winter tires for cheap but they are 235/65/17 ... I use to run 60s in winter and 65 aren't that much taller maybe an inch total but I need to make sure thanks
(facepalm) And when you need to take that apart to do a repair... ???
No... the upper ball joint is non-serviceable. However, by cutting the hex off the stud... that may make replacing that control arm a challenge the next time it needs replaced.
Thst hex is used to keep the stud from spinning when removing the nut.
