Remove in this order: wheel, loosen the 4 lower ball joint set bolts, cotter pin and nut from tie rod, tie rod from ball joint bracket, ball joint from lower control arm, 4 lower ball joint set bolts, ball joint from suspension. Install is reverse but don't tighten the 4 lower ball joint set bolts.

torque is as follows:
ball joint to control arm- 112 ft-lbs
Tie rod nut- 67 ft-lbs
lower ball joint set bolts- 83 ft-lbs
remember to use a new cotter pin

My 98 tacoma squeaks when i turn the wheels


Grease the Ball Joints, three per side (upper control arm, lower control arm, steering tie rod. if there aren't any grease zerks, its time to replace your ball joints. You can do this yourself with the parts from AutoZone or O'Reilly or Napa. I suggest you rent the ball joint tool as it will make your work a lot easier.

When im driving my 98 4x4 tacoma, it will violently vibrate at speeds of 40mph and then again at 60mph, then drive simi smooth after...any ideas as to what this could be, U-joint? wheel bearings?


Best guess is worn steering tie rods first. it doesn't take much wear for wheel shake to occur in the 4wd versions. next would be other steering components- idler arm and pitman arm. next would be ball joints- these are probably already needing replacement due to 4wd and age.
Good luck

jack up the the side with the broken ball joint under the control arm.
Remove the axle nut (4x4)
remove the caliper and the rotor.
remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle.
Remove the upper and lower control arm nuts and remove knuckle from vehicle.

Using a ball joint press remove and install the ball joint.

tighten axle nut (4x4 only) to 133 lb-ft after everything is assembled.

Replacing ball joints 2004 in 2004 z-71


You'll need to seperate the control arm from the wheel hub. If the ball joints are installed with rivots, you'll need to grind off the heads and knock them out with a punch. The new ball joints should have bolts and nuts to reinstall the new ball joints. Don't forget to grease the new ones, they come with very little grease installed.

Dont know where the upper and lower ball joints are located


If you turn the steering one way fully, looking behind the front wheel, you will see a pair of ball joints, one above the brakes, and the other below, very close to the wheel.
They are each attatched to a wishbone shaped component.The upper and lower.

How to change ball joints on 1997 2500 4x4 dodge diesel


Not hard, you'll need a special socket to get the axle nut off and getting the bearing out of the spindle is usually a real chore. Since it sounds like the spindle is already out, you might be able to do it in a press.

To get the ball joints out of the spindle, drive them out with a hammer. If you need to get the ball joint out of the axle, strike the axle next to where the ball joint taper is with a large hammer. That will usually distort the axle material enough (for a split second) to let the tappered section loose.

Upper and lower ball joints


Your better off have it done bt a tech because you need a press to press them out and in. Also you will have a warranty witk the work. You want to be safe messing with your steering and suspension. I hope this helps.
