Question about Nissan Pickup
I have a ball joint press and it seems to not be working... i just need to remove the old ball joint so i can replace it....can someone please help
Now i know this sounds bad but first thing is to throw that away ,,, next open nut on balljoint and then take a hammer and if you are a fella with good aim ,, strike the little housing that the balljoint is stuck in ,,,, a experienced mechanic can do it in 2 to 3 srtikes so theres a challenge for you!!!! seriously if you can hit it hard and have good aim it will come apart easy ,,,, modern stuff is alloy but yours is steel so you can hit it hard and do no harm ,,, once you dont beat the hell out of any thing else ,,,

SOURCE: Lower Ball Joint
You will have to remove it and replace it with a new one. The general steps for doing that is: 1)remove the tire 2)remove the caliper and rotor 3)remove the outer tie rod from the spindle 4)remove the axle nut 5) remove the cv axle 5)remove the nut on the ball joint 6) bang ball joint out and press in a new one. Then reassembly is exactly the reverse as disassembly.

most of these ball joints can be installed by themselves however since the control arm are so light it is unsafe just to do the balljoints still in order to replace the control arm you dont need to compress any springs just take it apart and put a new one in.

its easier to get the whole control arm and the lower one has to be pressed in. it is not and easy job if you dont have the right tools checkout rockauto.com to look at the replacement parts and to get a price on them

If your replacing ball joint anyway try this -
loosen nut the the point where it is just past the end of the bolt, then hit the nut to make everything come apart. The ball joint will be damaged, but if your replacing it anyway.....
