Hello guys

Just wanted to contribute back to the forum. I hope this video helps someone in the future!

<iframe src="" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" width="560"></iframe>

Parts replaced:
- Drag Link (Lemforder) from BavAuto.
- Tie Rods (Lemforder) from BavAuto.
- Idler Arm (Febi) from AutohauseAz.

You will need few spanners and ball joint separator. I also used a ball joint fork tool from AutoZone but somehow I forgot that I can turn the wheel to the right which pushes the pitman arm to the left and I think the ball joint separator would fit to pull the joint from pitman arm. Try this first before using the fork and the hammer... I feel the free play when the car is off in the steering wheel has increased and I think it happened when I hammered the fork on that ball joint connected to the pitman arm :bawling: I don't know how I forgot about turning the steering wheel ??????

Other than that, the process is straight forward but time consuming.

Let me know if you have questions!

Cheers cherrsagai
