Question about Cars & Trucks
They are replaceable. Common reasons for replacement include noise and low oil pressure. Replacement bearings come in standard as well as various undersizes, so rule number one is to make sure the bearing size matches the crank journals.

Jack up vehicle; back off set nut that connects outer to inner tie rod; remove cotter pin and castle nut from outer ball socket of t/r end; take a 'pickle fork' and tap between joint and steering knuckle to separate; then unscrew the outer t/r from the inner t/r, "counting the number of turns until completely off. Run the new locking nut onto new tir rod end; turn t/r same number of turns, and lock set nut; runt the new post of t/r end back into steering knuckle, tap down with a hammer, and use new castle nut to tighten; insert new cotter pin and grease fitting; again tighted locking nut to inner t/r; grease new t/r end...good to go!

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

There is a Ford "motor repair book" at most auto supply stores (not just a typical repair book).
If you have not done this before, it is somewhat of a challenge.
example: You must measure (to the micromillimeter) how much wear has been done to the piston rod end and the crankshaft so that you know what size (thickness) the replacement bearings should be. You just don't buy any bearings without measuring.
I would like to ask: Why are you doing this? You may not need to do it. Are you trying to stop an oil leak? replace seals?
Hope this helps!

Beleave it, or not. you need to look into the fuel injection system. I had to have #1 fuel injector replaced for the same reason.
