16 mm. there is also a 1/2 year model with an 18mm look on the driver door where the latch is and see if your car was produced in may or june if so it is a half year model therefore it will be an 18 mm

Have a lincoln 2000, it's supper shaky and also has a noice not so sure wat could it be they tell me the coils

Please describe the 'super shaky' and the noise. The following might help.
Well, I'm not an expert but your description matches threeissues I have seen with my LSs (I'm on my second 2000 LS) and others I waslooking at buying. The immediate concern is that you say you have a noiseand I say DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR ANY FURTHER! If the noise is kind of a whine,you may be okay for a while but if it's a high pitch and/or loud groaningnoise, STOP, get out of your car, get a flashlight, and check the ball jointsand/or the upper steering arms (I believe that's what Ford calls them). The LSlower ball joints and related upper steering arm that are, in my estimation,poorly protected with a CHEAP rubber protector that deteriorates anddisintegrates to nothing well before the life expectancy of the front endjoints they are supposed to protect. In any case, this would be a big concernso check this item first. Grab a flashlight and turn the wheels all theway, (best results = to the left for the d-side, right for the p-side) so youcan inspect the joints. That being said, "coilpacks" and/or faulty spark plugs are the most likely culprit for the"super shaky" if it's more like bucking and jerking and affecting duringacceleration or when you're cruising. Find yourself an auto store that withread your emission codes and look for a P030# code, wherein the # is thecylinder number (V8 motor). For example, a P0304 code means a misfire in the #4cylinder. BTW - the number 1 cylinder isthe front RIGHT (psngr-side) cylinder. The code gives you the cylinder number that is misfiring and it could bejust spark plugs as they generally last 75-115K miles.The other thing it could be is your transmissionslipping but I don't know anything about transmissions.

The passenger side ball joint broke and it was replaced. But the car seems to be low and hitting the trim around the tire as you turn.

No Ball Joint replacement would cause that

The ball joint is in the steering knuckle & you only
remove that & nothing to do with the coil over
Need more on what was done

I need to replace the ball joints both upper & lower on both sides, I have a ball joint removal & press. I got both uppers with no problems but can't get the lower ones to budge at all, I tried...

Turn the spindle Knuckle to one side so you can hit it with a big hammer and smack the fat part of it while putting pressure on it. If this doesn't work heat and repeat. I can give you more Ideas but I don't know what your car is.

Remove Steering Knuckle from vehicle
Remove Wheel Hub Bearing Assy from Knuckle
R&R Ball Joint

You can do yourself,BUT may need to
have the joint pressed out and back in,
IF you can not borrow the tools or rent

I would take the knuckle to an auto parts
store that could do it for you

I would not pay someone to pull the knuckle

Do both sides

Also flush Power Steering,Drain Trans 2 or 3 times etc,
while your involved.
