Here’s a great tutorial on replacing the ball joints on your Nissan 720 pickup, by our resident 720 expert, fastboatman29212!
I just finished putting ball joints on my 1986 Nissan 720 with 2WD. I learned a lot by reading repair manuals and talking to folks who have done it. After struggling a bit with the passenger side, I was able to do the driver’s side without any difficulty.
I got my new ball joints from World Suspension on eBay. I paid a crazy low price of $39.43 for all 4 ball joints delivered to my door. Last time I checked the price was at around $50 for all 4 joints delivered – still a great deal.
I hope you like my choice of posting photos with text. I think it makes things easier to understand. Each photo is numbered in the corner for easy reference if you have questions or comments.
