Tool for upper ball joint
This is the tool required to remove and refit the original upper suspension ball joint on all Citroen DS and ID models with 5 stud wheels and all SM models.
This tool is also the one required when fitting or removing our modern style upper and lower ball joints with the plastic cups, as the same nut style is used on both, which happens to be the same as the original upper nut.
These joints are very tight, so not only do you need this tool to undo them, you will also need to know what you are doing, plus a large vice bolted to a very sturdy work bench to hold the hub, amongst other tools. You cannot remove and refit the ball joint with the hub on the car, so do not even try!
The tool is sold on the basis that the user knows how to use it correctly and safely and has the facilities to do so.
