Back and much, much better than before

With both ball joint rubbers on the steering drag link arm replaced with top quality German made replacements, it was time to get the steering drag link arm fixed back in position on the Early Bay Westfalia camper.

Front end fixed and looking good…

Next it is time to look at replacing the outer and inner split rubbers on the drivers side track rod ends…

…so I’ll be using my new best friend of a tool, the draper expert ball joint splitter to remove the track rod so that accessing both track rod ends is easier making replacing both rubbers a much easier job to do!
