SOURCE: How do I remove the lower ball joint from the

You'll need a joint puller (looks like a big tuning fork). Depending on how it's held on there, you may also need a ring puller, or you may just need to remove the arm and use an impact driver to pound it out. You may even need to replace the whole arm assembly. The uppers on my Tbird are like this.

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

SOURCE: how do i replace the upper and lower ball joints

Dear Balljoint Replacer.....
This is a very labor intensive repair.The specialty tools that you need will be an air (or electric) die grinder, and an air hammer.If you already have these then GREAT!!! If not then be prepared to invest in a good $500 purchase for these tools.Once you get the vehicle up in the air and the wheels off then place jackstands underneath the frame and the lower control arms on both sides.Keep in mind to keep the jack stands underneath the lower control arms at all times because your suspension will be under load.Remove the brake calipers from both sides and swing them around and out of the way.....no need to break open the brake system....just swing the caliper and whole hose assy out of the way. Once tis is done its time to loosen and remove both upper and lower balljoint nuts...after that is performed then it's time to shock the spindle with a hammer to release the balljoints from the spindle.Your balljoints will then be ready to be removed.Now you have to take your grinder and score your rivets that hold your balljoints in on both the upper and lower so the top of the rivets are ground down to the control arm.Next take a punch and hammer the rivets in a downward movement to release the rivets and you can remove each balljoint like that.
The new balljoints install with nuts and bolts.Install is reverse of disassembly If you have any questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!

My two front tires are not straight


An alignment would be the first step to see if that is the problem. The repair shop that replaced the ball joints should have suggested it.

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.

I don't understand what you mean by a bolt over!!!, But when they did all that other stuff did they happend to chk. the ball joints, I have a 2001 durango, and i recieved a letter from chys. that there was a recall on the ball joints on durangos and dakotas so the dealer change them at no charge to me. Sound to me to be a ball joint issue, at least it would be worth looking into.

99 dodge durango needs ball joints


Well if you get an alignment after you put the new ones in you should be alright. As far as these new ball joints they probably just come pre-pressed on the arms and if thats the case then you will have to mess with the coil springs in which case you will need a special tool and you will have to align it all just right or you will have problems later on, i would just stick with the unpressed ball joints also make sure u have something to press them with like a heavy duty vise or a press itself don't use a hammer cause this will damage them.
