Wow thanks guys.

I never particularly liked working on my 944... we got it for $1,000.00. That should tell you why. :roll:

Thanks for the help thus far!

1996 850 GLT Lower Ball joint.

I searched for related articles and found a few, but none of them really answered my questions. A few weekends ago I was at the shop where I work as a cashier doing a tire rotation on my 850.

Obviously never from an 850
So these are the Pegasus rims?
