The book I have only covers repairs for 84-95 civics ... (stupid... but hey I've done all my repairs so far with out the right book... and a 98 spec ITR swap with no book too...) It claims that in order to change the upper ball joint you must buy the whole upper control arm.... However I have come home with just the new ball joints from napa...??? They couldn't sell a replacement part that is impossible to use would they? anyone changed balljoints on a 96 hatch before ??? I am thinking that I can take the upper control arm off and have the ball joint pressed in and out at my local machine shop.... just like the lower ones......RIGHT??? Also I have replaced my rear wheel bearings... how do I do the front ones.....?
