Ford Ranger Suspension Kit Install
The upper control arm upper ball joint shaft was larger diameter than the original.
The ball joint could not be installed into the steering knuckle. I had to get new parts at
Local auto parts that would fit correctly.
Need to return those parts that didn't fit.
Everything else fit fine.
