Created by Virgil White, an inventor and Ford dealer from West Ossipee, New Hampshire.

He patented the kit in 1913 and introduced it to the market in 1922. Henry Ford embraced the idea and allowed White to sell the conversion kit through Ford dealers.

Placing toilet paper in the fridge will soak up excess moisture & odors. At least the older brands did. Iím not sure about the new perfume smelling brands.

Before we had toilet paper, Americans used corn husks.
Red corn husks were used for the initial wipe. Then a white husks is used to to determine if you need to use the red one again. 😖

Replacing the lower ball joints isnít too bad if you have the right tools. Iíve done it top & bottom on my car. Itís finding someone to do the alignment properly thatís a pain. I finally found a dealership (Chrysler) mechanic who took my special Prowler toolís & service manual & taught himself how to do it. The dealership said they lost money on that alignment as it took quite a while to figure it out. Heís a young guy so I hope he stays working for that dealership. Also thumbs up for that dealership for accepting the car to be worked on. The service manager was there when Vipers & Prowlers were sold. He said they still have a DBR-III setup but no one there knows how to use it anymore.

Took me about 3 hours with human visitor distractions,,, lol.

Removed the fenders and brackets, calipers and rotors. Block the frame and let the suspension hang. Remove the ball joint nut. I found another nut to thread over the existing ball joint. I used a 1" solid rod with a small sledge to pop out the ball joint from the nuckle. Swing nuckle out of the way. I borrowed a ball joint tool kit from a friend. Removed and replaced and put back together in reverse. Amen.

Note: Ball joints were totally fine and tight. Only needed boots. I am in the process of finding a comparable boot. Down the road if the boots degrade and ball joints are fine I will just replace the boots.

Way to go. That didnít take too long. Now you have peace of mind knowing your front ball joints are like new again. My ball joints also appeared tight with deteriorated boots. The ball joint was a factory replacement which to my understanding werenít any better than the originals. Since you have to disassemble everything to replace the boot I went ahead and replaced the whole ball joint with a Rare Parts ball joint. I shouldnít have to worry about new boots again while I own the car. Now you have to make a blood sacrifice when doing this repair. Failure to do so will invite premature problems. It seems the blood repels Murphy & his pet gremlins. That is unless youíve got blue blood. Then you need to trick your best friend in holding something while you accidentally smash his finger or hand & use his blood.

Not sure if these where originals. The set I installed I believe is a old stock chrysler set I acquired in 2016 off of a member who sold his car. The boot material looks the same. I am assuming down the road I will need to address it again. At some point I will pick up a rare parts set to keep on the shelf. It will give this retired guy something to do at that point.

That guy Murphy can be annoying. 😆

If the ball joints you put in or took out have a X after the number on the bottom, they are the recall replacements.
