    That's not the one I have, the one I have has a ball on the end of the screw drive which fits into the stud of the ball joint.

    Here's the one I have, it's the one specifically made for W-bodies.


    The one on eBay might work, but I'd be concerned about that bolt being in the way. The W-body specific tool has the bolt on the bottom so there are no clearance issues.

    FWIW: I've searched ebay for almost 2 years for that tool. I've seen it twice. The last time was 2 months and I missed the auction!

    never used one of those tools. pickle fork and hammer always worked for me although it did tear the rubber boot, but it was coming off anyway. usually just takes a hammer. ahh, the beauty of "rust-free" climates
