ok here is my problem, my lower ball joint on my civic freely spins with nut, the thread on the ball joint is stripped and wont tighten all the way. it goes about a quarter of the way then spins together with the ball joint. Can I rethread it? is there a easier way to remove the ball joint itself and install it. I looked at the shop manuals and I need a vice and special tools to remove it, has anyone dealt with this problem before?
