I'm kicking myself for not buying one of these years ago. The quality is great and it worked great removing the ball joints on a 1998 Honda Accord. There was no damage to the boots. It fit the upper and lower ball joints and the steering tie rod ball joint. The pivot pin pulls out to so you can use this on either tall or short ball joints. Make sure you grease the threads before use!

This tool is great. No more using a fork and air hammer to separate ball joints anymore which destroys the boot. Very easy to use, and it is adjustable so it can be used on different cars, trucks, ball joints, and tie rods. Should have bought years ago, highly recommend.

I literally hammered and beat on a ball joint in my 97 BMW for 6 hours over multiple days without it budging a MM. I tryed the tie rod /ball joint kits from O'Rielly's and Advance auto, also part of the beating. Literally 1 minute after this was out of the packing the joint was out...Beware though the sound the joint makes coming out sounds like a shot gun blast within inches of your face. This tool is not a fluke, it was so easy to use I did the rest of the joints in my BMW...

I have messed with a few tie rod ends and ball joints in my time. This time around I had to remove an outer tie-rod end off a 1991 Toyota. It has always been a real pain getting these old parts off any car. The hammer method and pickle forks have given me hell sometimes in the past. This tool is built pretty solid. This tool took the tie-rod end off with ease. No blood -sweat or tears on this job. Thanks to Amazon- OTC and all you fine people with your honest reviews ----this was a great buy!!!!!

I purchased this product after I damaged another similar looking ball joint separator that I purchased for half the price. This version was visibly of better build quality. Other cheaper versions don't have a bearing at the end of the bolt, which helps it "walk" along the arm as it is spreading.

This ball joint separator was bought specifically to service 1966-1977 standard VW Bugs. This tool fits perfectly to separate the ball joint from the spindle without damaging the boots, so they can be reinstalled if necessary. Pickle forks don't always work in this application and they are guaranteed to rip the ball joint boot. This tool does the trick, plus I am very happy with the quality of the product.

I got this to do front end service on a 1998 BMW 5 Series. It doesn't open wide enough to pop the control arm ball joint on this car. The tool is very well made; just doesn't fit my car.

The opening on this tool is 2", so if you need more clearance you might want to try a different one.
