Requires several special tools that most people do not own. Like and impact wrench, large 28-35mm socket, star sockets, torque wrench, ball joint spreader, etc. Cheaper to have someone else install it verses the cost in obtaining the correct tools.
you will need a special tool to remove the lower ones, it takes a press, you can rent one at the nearest autozone, or parts store, and the uppers have rivets in them unless they have been removed before.
Tie rods are replaced from ball joint to ball joint, the place for the wrench is to adjust wheel alignment toe in. Ball joints are removed with a special fork, you can sometimes use a hammer to shock the taper and remove them.
Not to bad you will need a ball joint spreader. some sockets wrench's.prybar.Remove the tire then loosen cv bolt. Remove brake caliber and bracket.re move ball joint nut.Remove steering rod nut.Get the ball joint spreader an remove steering rod then remove the ball-joint.Take the cv bolt off grab the strut and pull outward .With a rubber mallet knock cv out of housing.The remove from transmission.you my have pry a little.
There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil
The only way is to press them out with a press, and press the new ones in. I have seen people try to press them out with a vise and a socket against the balljoint and it did not work, a local machine shop or repair shop should have a press.
