SOURCE: how to replace the lower
Ford states that you should replace the entire knuckle, however since I'm an Engineer (Mechanical and Electronic) and basically cannot stand other Engineers (they are usually full of themselves) I look at things a different way. I had the same problem and since I'm a bit lazy in my old age, I hired 2 different road mechanics to replace the ball joints on my 1998 Taurus SE. Both of them beat themselves silly with hammers to try to remove the old ones with no success. (They gave up & stated that Ithey would have to replace the entire knuckle assempby. I sent them on their way. (this was 2 seperate occasions a day apart). (they both also claimed ASE certified) The next day I went to Auto Zone, purchased the new ball joints and did it myself. After removing the hardware (nuts, snap rings, etc) I got out my air chisel. Had them BOTH out in about 3 minutes. Good luck. The entire job took me less than an hour. Good luck!!

if you have some mechanical knowledge, it is not really difficult. It is just time consuming. Pick up a Haynes manual and they will give you a step by step with pics in doing this.
