After looking over the other stickies, i'm still trying to seat the lower ball joint in to the slot/hole. I've got an eighth of an inch gap behind the pin. Secondly, is there a short necked allen wrench that will allow me to tighten the upper bolt last , or do you have to tighten the upper bolt first with a regular allen ?

The B-Joints are Lemfoerders, i would greatly appreciate someone's opinion who's already been there. Thank you.

I see you don't have a lot of posts and might need some help in how to get a response to any question you may have. Post in the "W210 E Class" section which is specific to your vehicle and you may get help more easily. Folks tend to look in their specific model section to pose questions and respond to others. I, and I'm sure others, rarely look at any other section other than the one that applies to their specific vehicle. So, it is pretty unlikely that someone with a '98 E 320 with a past or current ball joint problem would be looking at a post in the "General" section. Hope this helps.
