This is a high quality ball joint and universal joint removal and installation kit for the budget minded mechanic. The molded case makes it easy to store all the adapters safely in one place. There is also a set of laminated instructions fixed to the lid of the storage case which explains how to use the pieces for ball joint and universal joint removal and installation. There is a wide range of receiving tubes and cups, installing tubes and cups and adapters along with a C clamp with about 6” of usable distance between the clamps. The C clamp screw has a 7/8” head. In terms of sizes, the receiving tubes are sized as follows: 3” Outside Diameter x 2 ¾” Inside Diameter x 2 ¼” Long 3” OD x 2 3/16” ID x 1” L 2 ¾” OD x 2 7/16”ID x 2 ¼” L 2 7/8” OD x 2 5/8” ID x 2 7/8” L 2 ½” OD x 2 ¼” ID x 2 3/4” L 2 ½” OD x 2 ¼” x 1 ½” L 2 ½” OD x 2 ¼” x 3/4” L 2 ½” OD x 1 11/16” x 1 L 2 7/16” OD x 2 3/16” ID x 3 3/16” L 2 ¼” OD x 1 11/16” ID x 2” L 2” OD x 1 11/16” ID x 1” L There are also 3 shorter receiving cups sized at: 2 ¼” OD x 1 7/8” ID x 7/16” L 2 1/8” OD x 1 ¾” ID x ½” L 1 7/16” OD x ¾” ID x 1” L There is a 3 1/16” OD x 1 1/8” L removing tube/cup adapter The installing tube measures: 2” OD x 1 ¾” ID x 3” L and the installing adapter measures 3” OD x 1 1/8” L There is also a shorter installing cup measuring: 2” OD x 1 ¾” ID x 2 5/16” L While the range of install and receiving tubes is wide, Powerbuilt also sells special adapter kits for 1983-1997 Honda Accord, Civic, Del Sol and Prelude models as well as a separate adapter kit for 1996-2004 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sables. The adapter kits include additional receiving and install tubes that are used with this universal ball joint kit. In addition to using it with the driver side ball joint on my 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500 truck, I also found that the larger receiving tubes were helpful in letting me evenly seat the stator plate in a tach drive distributor that I was rebuilding for a 1957 Ford Thunderbird so the tubes have more uses than just ball/universal joints. Unlike some of the alternative ball joint removal kits that click together like a socket in a ratchet, you have to balance the pieces of this kit together while you snug up the tube/cup to the ball joint. The C clamp screw needs a 7/8” socket or wrench and I recommend a 2-3’ breaker bar for additional leverage for stubborn or rusted in ball joints. I did find it frustrating that the label is on the bottom of the storage case and I ended up opening the case upside down with all the tubes etc. falling out of their storage compartments so may well remove the label to stop it happening in the future. The kit appears to be made in Taiwan and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Warranty claims can be made to Alltrade Parts in Reno, NV by calling 1 800 423 3598.

This kit, offered by Powerbuilt, is made very well in Taiwan. The thickness, black phosphate coating, and finish of the adapters are reminiscent of quality impact sockets. This kit is precisely cut, flawlessly finished, and ready for a pounding. I can highly recommend it to any DIYer who doesn’t like renting tools. For Pro’s, it depends. This kit can hold its own in a professional shop (that’s where mine’s going), but if you do ball joints every day, this is the old style that doesn’t have the modern conveniences of the adapters snapping into the clamp and to each other. You have to line everything up and hold it while tightening, make sure nothing’s misaligned, etc... On the flip side, if you only do ball joints once a week or occasionally, why spend a fortune for those other sets? This is a great set to have, even as a backup. Another nice feature is the instruction manual it comes with. It shows you how to remove or install a ball joint, a u-joint, and general use in easy to follow instructions with pictures. It’s attached to the inside top of the case and has a little latch that retains the bottom so it doesn’t flop around. Can’t knock this kit at all for the price, value, and convenience of a stow and go in a blow molded case. Getting it caused me to look into Powerbuilt a bit as well. They seem to consistently offer quality products at a great price and put their own twist on them.

This is a great tool set. It is super heavy-duty (and just heavy)! It comes with enough adapters that it should be able to tackle any job most users encounter. The multiple sleeves will also be handy for applications other than ball joints that involve pressing out parts. It comes with useful instructions that are built into the strong plastic case.

Very versatile and all in one ball joint and U-Joint remover and installer tool. The twenty three piece tool set comes in a nice and sturdy blow molded plastic case with slot for every piece very well defined. In use on a set of front ball joints on my RAM heavy duty pickup, this tool set made short work of getting the ball joints removed and reinstalled. Quality seems decent and at a minimum, should stand up to most home mechanic use.

            Great item. I used it to press IN my ball joints on a 2005 Acura TL. I would have said 5 stars except nothing would fit to press OUT the ball joint. So basically I just put the knuckle up against a lip on the cement garage floor and knocked it out with a 3 lb hammer and a wedged sledge without the handle. It takes about 30 whacks to get it out. If you have a jack hammer, that would work too. Same principle.

              Right tool for the job.
              I used the 23-piece Ball Joint/U-Joint Service Kit to replace the ball joints on my 20004 Jeep Wrangler. The kit included all of the pieces needed to do the job quickly and safely. All of the components were heavy duty and should last for a very long time. The instructions were easy to follow and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this service kit to all home and professional mechanics.
