The large castellated nut that secures the ball joint to the A-arm (901-341-425-00) should be removed either with a chisel or an impact hammer due to the incredible amount of force necessary to budge it free. This will normally render the old nut useless, and require it to be replaced along with the ball joint. This nut also requires a special tool for installation since it needs to be properly torqued to a whopping 184 ft-lbs. This specially made socket uses a 1/2" drive and is the only tool for the job.

De-Cambered Ball Joints
Need more camber? Elephant Racing's proprietary-design De-Cambered Ball Joints provide up to 3/4 degree additional negative camber per side. Track is widened up to 1/2 inch.
The ball joint stud is non-concentric with the housing, effectively lengthening the control arm and pushing the bottom of the strut (and tire) out resulting in added negative camber.
Construction includes a true spherical bearing monoball for low-friction, freedom of movement and zero deflection.
Fully weather-sealed, De-Cambered Ball Joints are a true bolt-in using factory ball joint hardware.
