A ball joint separator is a helpful tool used to free ball joints from the suspension components they are attached to on a vehicle. Because these components have very tight tolerances on the ball joint shaft they sit on, when it comes time for them to be replaced it is rare for them to simply slip off. The design of this separator allows it to slip between the ball joint and the component it is attached to and essentially drive the two apart with the aid of a hammer. The ToolPRO Mini Ball Joint Separator is designed to be of use for those with limited space around the ball joint in question as it spans a total length of only 200mm. The jaw width measures up at 24mm which is perfect for typical ball joints on most light and medium duty vehicles. Durability and rigidity is key with tools like this; made from drop forged and heat treated steel, this ball joint separator is not only strong enough to take the force needed for this kind of job, it also has an ability to withstand a great amount of heat.
