    When my rear UCA zerks were recently sheared off, I needed to remove the Johnny Joints to get the remainder of the zerks out. The joints need to be pressed in/out, and I don't have a shop press. Seeing as I plan to remove and inspect the joints over the winter anyways, I decided to invest in a Currie Enterprises Johnny Joint Assembly/Disassembly Tool to help get the job done. Below are pictures of p/n CE-9110T for 2 ĹĒ Johnny Joints. Currie also makes similar tools for for 2" and 3" Johnny Joints as well.

    No sense in reinventing the wheel, so I didn't do a write-up in how to use this. Currie has already put out a pretty good video regarding the Johnny Joint Assembly/Disassembly Tool:



    If you don't want to spend the coin on the Johnny Joint rebuild tool, cozdude has put together an excellent step by step using a shop press:

    That is well worth it! Iíve used mine to rebuild the joints a few times.

    My current stabilizer has Peyronie's disease. At first I was going to seek out a regular OE style stabilizer and use the $80 Synergy relocation kit to get it up and out of the way.

    However, I found a Fox 2.0 Performance Series TS Stabilizer with a 1.5" tie rod clamp on Amazon through a third party vendor pretty cheap without Prime shipping. As this style stabilizer mounts up and out of the way without a need for the relocation kit, I just used the 80 bucks toward that instead. I was always left with the impression that the Fox TS / ATS was overkill and overpriced for a steering stabilizer, but now I'll have one at my front door by midnight tomorrow. I don't know what this world is coming to.

    Eddie installed the same stabilizer, seen via the link below:

    The Fox 2.0 Performance Series TS Stabilizer was delivered today. Although I can't install it until later in the week, I couldn't wait to open the box to see if the Fox logo on the tie rod bracket was upside down as seen in Eddie's video that I posted above. Turns out that it's reversible. LOL. 😅

    To be honest, I'm not sure which way I'm going install the tie rod clamp. Should I match it to my driver EVO SPEC KING FRONT BUMP?

    Or to my passenger EVO SPEC KING FRONT BUMP? 🤣
