Applies to Jeep Cherokee (XJ) 84-01, Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) 93-98, Jeep Wrangler (YJ, TJ and LJ) 87-06, and Jeep Comanche (MJ) 86-92.

  • You may want to replace all four ball joints at the same time.
  • Putting the ball joints in the freezer for a day or two will cause the metal to shrink, making installation easier.
