Photo DIY: Rear Lower Support Joint R/R

As part of my 'Vibration at 50 mph' search, I could visually see the Rear Lower Support Joints (RLSJ) had deteriorated rubber.

A surprisingly easy job, especially if you follow the WIS procedure of R/R "With Wheel Carrier Installed".

NO NEED to remove Springs, Shock, Entire Lower Control Arm...

Simply remove tire, R/R LCA-to-Wheel Carrier Nut/Bolt **** YOU MUST REPLACE SELF-LOCKING NUT PER WIS*** Separate the Wheel Carrier from the LCA, Press OUT the Old Joint, Pull-In the New Joint, Re-Align the components by pulling the wheel carrier back into the LCA, Nut/Bolt back in.. Torque.... DONE!!

Here is what My RLSJ looked like:

Of course... Post-Procedure, a 4-Wheel Hunter 'Laser' Alignment is in Order!
