I was just turning the wheel and the balljoint snapped. I'm doing the suspension and lowering anyway. Is it ok if I just let it sit on 2 bricks? For like 2 months?

I plan on lowering my car could I just take off my front wheels and put blocks at the bottom to support the A arms and install my steeds balljoints? And just leave my car like that till I get my shocks and struts and lowering springs within 3-4 weeks?

And if it's going to sit for a long time is invest in a car cover. They're good to have anyway.

I used the bottom side of a breaker bar to pop them in and out.
