    Instead of dumping the cash just pick up a good used 3/4" socked from a pawn shop and cut the prongs into it with an angle grinder. Worked fine for me.

    Ok..I am getting ready to do the balljoints on my 44. Have an extra set of knuckles, with old joints still on them. I dont see where this tool is needed. Anybody clear this up for me?

    There's a castle style nut sitting inside the upper ball joint bore. It likes to stick in place, but that's what you have to move to get your pre-load. The socket makes turning it much easier than a punch and chisel.

    This socket is used for adjusting preload on the ball joints and it fits onto/into the adjusting collar that is located in the C of the diff housing where the upper ball joint goes through.

    Yep, what they said. I have the Snapon version. It works well but is a little pricey like most snapon stuff.
