How to change rear ball joints on 2002 dodge stratus


Instructions
  1. Remove the Upper Control Arm
    • 1Disconnect the ground battery cable using a wrench.
    • Loosen the front wheel lugs located on the same side of the upper ball joint you need to replace. Use a lug wrench.
    • Raise that same front wheel off the ground using a floor jack and support the vehicle on a jack stand.
    • Finish removing the tire.
    • Take the cotter pin off the upper ball joint stud holding the steering knuckle arm. Use a pair of nose pliers.
    • Remove the castle nut from the upper ball joint stud using a wrench or ratchet, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Loosen the two bolts securing the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Use a wrench to hold the bolt head as you loosen the retaining nut with a ratchet and socket.
    • Pull the control-arm ball joint off the steering knuckle arm. You may need to use a Pitman arm puller to free the ball joint.
    • Finish removing the two bolts from the back of the upper control arm and lift the upper control arm off the vehicle.
    Install the New Upper Control Arm
    • Set the new upper control arm in place and install the two bolts and retaining nuts to secure the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Remember the bolt heads should point inward toward the shock absorber with the retaining nuts on the outside of the mounting bracket. Do not tighten the bolts yet.
    • 11Insert the control-arm ball joint on the steering knuckle arm and start the castle nut with your hand over the ball joint stud. Do not tighten the nut yet.
    • Tighten the two bolts on the mounting bracket to 67-foot lbs. (91 Nm) using a torque wrench. Hold the bolts with a backup wrench as you tighten the retaining nuts with the torque wrench.
    • Tighten the ball-joint castle nut to 45-foot lbs. (61 Nm) using the torque wrench, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Install a new cotter pin through the joint-ball stud hole using the nose pliers. If necessary, tighten the castle nut just a few degrees to clear the stud hole through one of the castle nut slots.
    • Mount the tire on the wheel assembly and install the wheel lugs using the lug wrench.
    • Lower the vehicle and finish tightening the wheel lugs.

Removing Ball joints


You'll need the repair manual for this. There are upper and
lower ball joints front and rear. You also have to deal with
a number of suspension components to access the ball
joints. Lower ball joints can be replaced by pressing old
out and new in using a large socket to match circumference
of the ball joint.
