I just finished replacing both upper and lower ball joints. Ran into a couple complications along the way (you always do) however I was able to overcome all of them except for putting the snap ring back in place. I went through a couple of pliers taking them out until i found the right one now I am having issues putting the ring back in place it seams as if the axle shaft is not out far enough. Is it possible the seal is not 100% pressed in or something else? Any thoughts on this? Any feedback is greatly appreciated I just had to skip the ring and roll it out of the garage for the night.
