These are just regular shocks and not struts so they should come out with just common tools. You may need to soak the fasteners in penetrating oil for a while or, use heat tget the fasteners to break loose from the corrosion.

if you dont have a ball joint press and dont know how to use one then dont do it, but if you do its not that bad of a job just jack the truck up under the control arm remove the brake rotor then take the lower ball joint nut off then use a pickle fork to break the ball joint loose then take the axle nut off push the axle out of the bearing and use the ball joint press to remove and replace the ball joint

Replaced head gaskets but still have white smoke out tail pipe

NOTE: Water vapor will collected in the exhaust system and will burn it off as steam until the pipes get hot enough to boil it off when starting a cold engine. That being said:
you could indeed have a crack in the head, or crack in the water jacket. You may or may not be able to spot some contamination of oil in the coolent or vice-versa, i would check for that too.

I have Ecort 1.8 td from 2000 Y of production, and have white smoke on pipetail and idles very roughly, engine coolent is OK, oil level is OK, what can it be the problem?.

White smoke and running roughly would normally point to a head gasket problem.

Keep an eye on your engine coolant I'd imagine it will start to disappear.

not knowing what vehicle you have the common problem generally points to a head gasket failure, pull the plugs and if any of them seem white you have a gasket problem

Ford faimont using a lot of coolent

When you have coolant loss, it can go out as a leak which would make a pool of antifreeze under the car, or it can go through the engine into the exhaust. This shows up as white smoke that smells like pancake syrup. It's hard to tell from your description which one is going on. The first cause is more simple to fix, you would just find the leak and change maybe the water pump or the leaky radiator or heater core. The second is likely a blown head gasket, which is an expensive repair.
