How to adjust upper balljoint???

1303 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  wetnsloppy4x
There is a threaded "split ring" type of devise that screws into the knuckle-yoke where the upper balljoint gets bolted up. Someone told me that this ring is turned to adjust the amount of force needed to steer the knuckle. Is this true? What is the procedure for adjustment???

Lars nailed it.

You can get offset preload nuts to help correct for any alignment issues. When going through my D44 I pulled out a 2* nut on one side. The other side had a regular nut.

On a solid axle 44? Never seen such a thing,yet! Picture please.
I'm glad you asked for a pic. It made me go back and look at my old pics. You'll still have to wait to see such a thing. :emb4: I confused the 2* wedge shaped shim under the upper BJ nut on mine with the collar. oops. (*note to self: Get checked out for Alzheimer's) Sorry.:emb4: Im an idiot. :emb4:
