SOURCE: ball joints repair on a 1997 chevy blazer

If they are the original ball joints you will have to remove the rivets on them. The new ones should come with replacement nut and bolts. You will have to remove the brakes, and move the steering knuckle out of the way (You don't have to remove the tie rod end). It isn't difficult, just time consuming. You can do it in the driveway on stands. Make sure you have a couple hours, and a case of beer.

The ball joints on both 2wd and 4wd upper are pressed in you need to remove snap ring and using a hammer pop out the old one out this is after you seperate the upper arm from the spindle. To install the new ball joint you should use a ball joint press that you can rent at most autoparts shops

SOURCE: replace lower ball joints on a 2000 chevy blazer 4

Raise vehicle up on jack stands so that the stands are under the lower controll arms and the suspension is "loaded" Remove the front tire(s) (if you break the torque on the nuts while the wheel is still on the ground it helps, but do not loosen them completely as you will be looking for new rims and wheel studs too). Place a drift or some other suitable object in one of the brake rotor vanes so that it will hit the brake caliper and stop the rotor from moving and remove the CV shaft nut (it's a big ****** make sure you have the right socket on hand before getting to this point). Next remove the brake caliper and rotor then undo the wheel bearing retaining bolts and remove the wheel bearing. This should give you enough room to move the axle shaft back and up so you can work on the ball joint. If you've had ball joints replaced before just unbolt the ones that are installed and using a pickle fork, or a block of wood and a hammer, drive the ball joint stud from the knuckle. (make sure to support the upper control arm so it doesn't drop down on you when you do this) If you are working on original ball joints then I reccomend placing a block of wood or something else that will protect the cv boots from drill bits ect and drill out the rivets holding the ball joint in place. then remove in the same manner indicated in the previous paragraph. installation is pretty much the reverse of removal and don't forget to torque your cv shaft nut I have a 1999 and the manual specs 103FTlbs... This is a critical torque as it helps preload your wheel bearing. Too high and you'll burn them up, too low and they'll be loose and wear out.

Have a full body shake in my 07 chevy malibu. have replaced brakes and rotors and bearings front and back.as well as tires and rims..what else can it be from?


Hi Jim:
I'd start by checking suspension mounting points, steering component connections, (ball joints) drive shaft u-joints , cv joints, engine mounts, everything that connects moving parts to the chassis.
I'm assuming that the tires were balanced when replaced.
If you reply as a COMMENT to this post I may be able to assist.

I list a lower ball joint available to purchase.

What is an occasional squeal or grind sound when i turn wheel on 2006 chevy malibu


Hi Willis,
It seems to be that the problem is with the ball joints of your car. Get the ball joints replaced asap. It will be a small repair.
If you ignore this, your rack ends, tie rods and camber will be have to replaced. That will cost about 200USD.

If the front of the car doesn't make a "Dug DUg " noise when going over small pot holes, then you will have only replace the lower ball joints.

After getting repaired I will suggest that you do a wheel alignment.
Also inspect for any uneven wear of tyres. That is also a good sign for the balls joints to be replaced.
Hope this was helpful

Rubbing noise sounds like it's coming from steering column


I have owned about 15 cars so far. ALL of the Chevy vehicles had developed problems with the ball joints / ball bearings. The most recent one was the one where I heard the rubbing noise. Unfortunately the front tire almost totally came off. It turned out to be the ball joints / ball bearings & the pinion. cost a couple thousand to fix. Get it checked. I saw another Chevy & that driver was NOT so lucky - their tire completely came off.
