03'nissan frontier4x4crewcab v6 which parts need to b replaced before alignment


have the front suspension and steering inspected by an accredited suspension shop to get some idea of what is needed
normally it is upper and lower ball joints or lower ball joints and struts and steering rod ball joints
they can also do a wheel alignment and if you haggle with them they may do the alignment for free if they get to replace the worn parts
don't forget that a proper wheel alignment means that the rear wheels are properly aligned to the chassis first before the front wheels are done

Replace front ball joints on jeep


Hello there,
To replace the front ball joint on your jeep. You will be needing these instruments, Lug wrench Jack, Jack stands, Wheel chocks, Socket set, Wrench set, Needle-nosed pliers, Hub puller, Ball joint separator, Hammer, Ball joint press, Torque wrench, then, Please follow the steps below:
Loosen the lug nuts on your Cherokee's front tires, using the lug wrench. Jack up the front end of the vehicle and brace it with jack stands. Place wheel chocks behind the rear tires to prevent rolling. Back the lugs off the lug nuts, and remove both front tires from your Cherokee.
Remove the bolts behind the calipers. Lift the calipers off the hubs and set them on a support so they do not stretch the rubber lines.
Pull straight out on the brake rotor to remove it from the wheel studs.
Remove the cotter pin from the end of the axle shaft that extends through the hub. This is best done with a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Remove the drive nut from the axle shaft, and set it off to the side.
Remove the three bolts retaining the hub. These 12-point bolts are on the rear of the assembly.
Separate the hub assembly from the knuckle; a hub puller will make this easier.
Remove the cotter pins from the ball joints, using the needle-nosed pliers. You must detach the pins from both the upper and lower ball joints. Use a socket and ratchet to remove the nuts at the bottom of each ball joint.
Insert a ball joint separator between the knuckle and the ball joint. A hammer can be a big help to drive the separator into place and force the knuckle and ball joint apart.
Use a ball joint press to remove the joints. The ball joint press will force the upper and lower ball joints out. Follow the instructions included with your press.
Insert the new joints, using the ball joint press. You must reverse the motion of the press this time, pressing down on the upper joint and up on the lower joint. Be sure that the joints are completely in place within the knuckle.
Reinstall the steering knuckle onto the new ball joints, and thread the nuts onto the bottom of the joint. Check your manufacturer's specifications for the torque requirements for the nuts. Insert the cotter pins, and bend them down around the nut.
Reassemble the hub and axle around the knuckle. When replacing the three bolts, torque them to your manufacturer's specification.
Place the brake assembly back into position, both rotor and caliper. Replace the two bolts you removed on the caliper. Torque the bolts to your manufacturer's specification. Place the wheel back on the Cherokee, and tighten the lug nuts appropriately. With the wheel secured, lower the vehicle back to the ground.
Hope this was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

DOES MY DURANGO HAVE ABS IN THE FRONT? DOES IT HAVE AN UPPER AND LOWER BALL JOINT?


If it has the 4 wheel anti lock brake system, yes. All Durangos came with rear wheel anti lock brakes, standard. I would look to see if there is a black cable going to the front wheel hub area. Or any markings on the vehicle stating 4 wheel anti lock brakes or rear wheel anti lock brakes, it may say on the brake pedal. You do have upper and lower ball joints.
