    • Original Toyota 12 point 30mm Hub nut. What you should find!

    • You may find and aftermarket Dorman etc. 6 point 32mm(?) Hub nut. Which I found on the passenger's side.

    • Whilst the car is still on the ground loosen the wheel nuts and apply some heat with a propane torch to help loosen the hub nut.

    • With the hand brake on and the care in 1st gear or Park.Loosen the Hub nut using a breaker bar, you can use a longer bar, a pipe to extend it. On the passeger's side using a jack to create leverage worked. On the other a swift blow from a mallet.

    • Then Jack up the car and lower in onto axle stands. Remove the lug nuts, remove the wheel and then remove the hub nut and store it safely

    • Using a 14mm socket, remove the 2 bolts holding the Brake Caliper on.

    • Once the Caliper is removed, hang it from the spring to relieve tension/stress on the brake hose!

    • Using a 17mm socket, remove the 2 bolts holding the bracket on. remove the pads and bracket, store them safely.

    • Remove Hub to Strut bolts. First Give them a good heating ,(On the driver's side I left the torch there for several minutes!) with a propane torch

    • Hold the bolt in place,(later I purchased a 19mm combo wrench...) and using a 19mm socket wrench with remove the nut. (I used and extendable wrench).

    • Remove the Tie Rod bolt. 17mm Castle bolt with a cotter pin through it. On mine the pin was missing. The pin will be rusted in you can twist the ends till they break off and chisel it flat. Apply heat but try to avoid too much. Soak the area in penetrating oil once the nut is off. Then hit the bar with a mallet and it will drop out

    • The Lower Ball Joint had to come off! I cleaned the 2 nuts and bolt with a wire brush, applied lots of penetration oil. Then I heated each nut up for a few minutes, then removed them with a 19mm socket. I did the same to the bolt, 19mm socket, it too came out.

    • After lifting out the hub assembly, I cleaned and spray painted the arm. Note: If suspect the arm may be bad, swap it, I didn't and my replacement bearing failed on the passenger side, the drivers side lasted. see next Optional step

    • I then order my new lower ball joint and awaited its arrival. For the other side I ordered the same ball joint in advance!

    • The Control arm comes off with two 19mm Bolts after a little heat is applied. The vertical bolts are held by a 19mm bolt. Once it is removed, the bushing will move and hold the bolt partly out, grab it with locking pliers ad hit the pliers down to remove it.

    • To install the vertical bolt through the bushing, I used a socket extension to align the bottom of the bushing. Then push the bolt up, put it under pressure with a jack, and use a spanner/wrench to move the top of the bushing till the bolt, pops through! Put the Bolt on!

    • The other part of the control arm aligns easily, slide in the horizontal bole and screw it in. Tighten both bolts up!

    • Attach the Hub assembly with a 22mm 6 point combo wrench. This Nut size will depend on the manufacturer of the replacement Ball joint. This was an AC Delco 46D2308A.

    • Insert the cotter pin and bend it into place. Bend the cotter pin with whatever you have to hand. I used a socket extension and a hammer.

    • I used a plastic drinking straw inserted deep into the Moly. grease, flattened the end, inserted into the Tie rod ball joint by squeezing it up. Squeezed down the straw to inject new grease into the ball joint. Then moved it around and cleaned excess from the exterior.

    • Reattach the Tie rod to the hub. As the cotter pin had been missing since I owned the car, I used Blue thread locker and a lot of force to tighten the castle nut. You could probable drill out the old pin once the nut is on and put in a new cotter pin.

    • I had to re-swap my Knuckle in the middle of Winter. The Knuckle did not go into the strunt so I banged it in with a Mallet. DO NOT DO THIS!

    • I broke the coil spring. The snow came I was out of gas I drove it to get gas and the spring came down and ripped a hole in my tire!

    • Do it right by removing corrosion from the knuckle mounting point with an appropriate tool.

    • Note: The other side spring failed, six months later, so it could just be age and it may be worth swapping both out? My car had 220000 miles and 21 years...

    • Attach the hub to the strut, I applied more Blue threadlocker and tightened. 19mm both sides, I used the combo wrench to hold the bolt heads and tightened with the extendable socket wrench and my foot!

    • Add a little thread lock and replace the hub nut

    • Reassemble rotor and brake. Put on the wheel, get the car back on the ground, tighten the hub nut first then the wheel lugs.

Заключение

Once done take in for a short drive around the block with the windows down to listen for any noises.

Good luck!
