In this clip we're going to talk about installing the replacement Ball Joints Snap Ring. As you can see I have my safety glasses on. The Snap Ring is this piece right here and it is going to sit in that groove and keep the Ball Joint from coming out. They make all sorts of various tools and pliers for dealing with Snap Rings. I find that a set of needle nose work just fine. As you can see the Snap Ring is seated fully into the groove all the way around the Ball Joint.
