Re: Lower Ball Joint Boot Install trick???
I realize this is an old thread but I found it when trying to solve this issue so I'm gonna post to maybe help others.
I was having the same issue on my 67 C10. A 2" PVC was the perfect fit and I greased the boot and ball joint and still managed to to damage the hard ring at the bottom of the boot. In frustration I cut the metal ring in the boot and wire tied it on like I do with my dirt bike handle bar grips. This reminded me of the old trick for putting on grips. Spray the inside with hairspray. I tried this on the other side and it went right on.
