  8. Separate the ball joint from the strut/knuckle assembly using ball joint/tie rod puller J-35917 or equivalent.
Do NOT damage the halfshaft boots when drilling out the ball joint rivets.
  1. Drill out the rivets retaining the ball joint to the knuckle strut assembly and remove the ball joint from the knuckle. Use a 1/8 in. drill bit. Refer to the instructions in the ball joint replacement kit.

SOURCE: Replacement Front Suspension, Lower Ball Joint

The easiest way is too remove the whole knuckle and remove the joint on a bench. The Ball Joint is in the knuckle, not in the lower control arm. Try to not break pinch bolt on lower strut clamp. Hope this helps.. :-) Cobra

2002 grand prix front tires are wearing out on the inside tread ?


It could be either the ball joints or the tie rod ends are worn out. With it being a front wheel drive car also check your drive axles. Make sure that the axle boots are not torn or cracked which if they are cracked or torn replace them and repack the cv joints.

I have a 99 grand prix gtp and i connect the lower ball joint to the a frame helpppp


need 2 people for this job. Make sure car is not jacked under A-Frame. Bring hub in to connect axle on splines. Next, one person uses a long prybar to pry the A-frame down (stick pry bar in from back and under inner fender well or frame. Other person rotates the hub inward, fully seating the axle and slipping the ball joint into the A-Frame. Other person can now stop prying, as joint should stay together.

When turning the front end makes a rubbing or vibration noise.


This is caused by incorrect & uneven front tire inflation OR a worn out CV joint( constant velocity joint) & this joint is the power transmitting shaft from the transmission to the tires. If it needs to be changed, you'll need to remove the lower ball joint & rim & tire & holddown nut to the CV joint. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Rh inner cv joint loose and vibrats new cv axel same problem is still there


Might be a front end problem, like a worn tie rod end, upper and/or lower ball joint. Better have it checked, if one of them break, you'll loose the steering.
