Photo DIY- Supporting Joint/Lower Ball Joint R/R

Well, #1 son admits hitting a Pot-Hole really hard (the Record-Rains have made our roads a mess)

Since then, I have noticed a "vibration" arising from the right front wheel area, most pronounced at
30 mph and 65 mph.

After SAFELY lifting the car, Pry-Bar examination of the suspension system revealed a Loose "Supporting Joint" or "Lower Ball Joint", whatever you want to call it...

Since I had already purchased the Joints for my Mother-in-Law's W202 (the idiot shop who "claimed" they were bad... they were perfectly fine, so I brought them home.)

I decided to give the Meyle HD (Heavy-Duty) versions a try. I'll let you know my impressions later down the road (pardon the pun).

Here are some YouTube clips showing "Normal" and "Aby-Normal" Joints:

Normal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QavRcNLEsKw&feature=youtu.be

Aby-Normal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFEhjwOOQRM&feature=youtu.be


PS- "WHY" am I posting a W210 job on a W202 forum?? Because it is the EXACT SAME Job, Torque Values, Part Numbers... Etc.
