Guys, I am a month from turning 59 and love working on my truck.
Today, spent 5hrs working on removing and installing new upper ball joints and inner tie rods on my 2003 Tacoma. Well I got into trouble trying to press the upper ball joint on the passenger side. I bought a kit and still the bugger would not budge. So, I decided to work on the inner tie rod on the same side and unfortunately I don’t own a pipe wrench and my channel locks were no match for loosening it. Drats!!!! I was losing daylight and needed to put back together as best I could, knowing that I will be back at it again for the next couple of days.
My question is, why does my body hurt so much??? I realize I don’t work on cars for a living but darn it why is it so painful??? Mind you, I don’t own a lift and did all the work on jacks.
Maybe ibuprofen or aleve before during and after will do the trick. Who knows..
