    Does anyone have a Total Chaos Uniball remover tool? Or 1" uniball removal tool I can borrow this week? I have some Desert Research and Total Chaos uniballs that need replaced.

    Just trying to avoid buying something I will only use once.

    I need to replace my 1" uniballs as well, I dont have the tool either. If you don't end up finding one, I would be down to split the cost of the tool.

    I just used two sockets 1 to pound it out, and another bigger one to support the control arm and "catch" the uniball, mine pounded out surprisingly easily, but if you needed to you can put them in a vice. Pounded them back in with the socket too and it all went really smoothly.

    I also wasn't about to pay 180+ shipping for two uniballs, so i searched around and found these:

    http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/R1888.html

    chromoly PTFE lined uniballs and they have been great. Got four replacements (upper and lowers arms) for 137$ + 9$ shipping. (TC would have been 360+ship)

    Use this stuff for lube : https://www.amazon.com/CRC-Industri...pID=41GF1RSFcIL&preST=_SY445_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

    used a similar method in a pinch on military planes while doing a cross country flight, 2 big sockets and a couple wrenches = instant bearing puller.

    I agree we should have some meets more often. I'm glad everyone else is also down for monthly meets, but, it's never gonna happen if everyone says, 'I can't this month, maybe next', every month hahaha

    Anyone interested in some Fox Remote Resi 2.5" Coilovers extended travel with 13" Icon 650lb springs. Dirty and have a little surface rust on the body. Needs new heims and probably rebuilt. Just guessing have about 30-35K on them. No leaks. Mounting bracket had to be modified/drilled to fit my bumper bracket

    Rears 2.0 Fox Remote Resi with custom 90 degree angle reservoir lines. (Kept having problems with them leaking at the line) They show pits and a little rust on the body as well.
