I need help with uniball replacement

I need to replace the uniball on my camburg UCA but I don't have the retaining ring plier and a press... I tried it with the plier that I bought at harbor freight and it didn't work. If anyone live around Anaheim area and has tools please help me... I'm almost done getting my suspension together

They are easy to press out with the right tools. with that said, you should be able to bring the arms to any automotive machine shop local to your area to have them swap them out..shouldn't charge too much for it.

I just did mine earlier in the week and took less then an hour to remove and reinstall the UCA's.

A good set of pliers will run you what its going to cost for someone to just do it for you. I paid like $160 or something dumb for a matco set.

My snap ring pliers from Sears that I got in the mid 1980's are still going strong. I may have bent them a little bit, but I worked on a lot of Chevy 3/4 and 1 ton drivetrains. Use them correctly and carefully and they'll last a lifetime.

Walk into autozone with the arms and see if they have the snap ring pliers there that you could use real quick.

If you come up with nothing, I live in Yucca Valley. You can make the drive in another car if your truck is all apart. Not sure where you are at.
