Hi Squares
He's some update. I'm working on cleaning in the wheel well area splash gauard, I had ball joints for some time invoice date march 25 MAC's
part #66-33477-1 they don't fit so good, not a biggie easy fix, make hole
bigger. I all ready cut tabs off because they hit the Aarm first, and i thought would fix it, it help but then the ball hit, I'll show you with my flicker album 7 pic. when you run your mouse over each pic. it tell you .
.................................................. .............................
...................upper ball joint.......................................
1 housing just a bit bigger. 2 old-new tabs
3 groves for tabs 4 cut off tabs
5 old one fits down 6 new ball hit prevents being flush
even with tabs,
7 showing old & new, it flairs out,
.................................................. ..........................
I don't think its a big deal. its just I have little time to do things
and i'm slow enough with out any help in that Department .
............................

This is totally unacceptable in my book. Over the counter parts should fit without modification.

I knew this would happen eventually, all our parts are coming from Communist China or India, Pakistan, Taiwan, etc. Our choices are gone and so is competition but most important is 'QUALITY'. If you don't like what they sell, too bad. Go over there and sue them. See how far you get.

Randy must file his upper 'A' arm for these new ball joints to fit flush OR stack washers between the joint and arm. Terrible!

Hi OX1
the ball joint I got said it was equiv. And I'll order the one's you put up thanks, I just had a lot of parts on my list, MAC said they are the one so they say, I was just giving the Squares a heads up that these are not your best, to find something different, if there is such , I will try the one you point out and hope its not the same as I got from mac. I will know not to screw it up and send it back, and make do with what I got, I think Dave was saying WE should not have to Make it work, if they advertise it would work then it should work. I have nothing by me to compared to I mostly rely on reading the squares, and to all squares here thank you, and if you were going to replace your upper ball joints I would not buy the ones that Mac has!
