most of these ball joints can be installed by themselves however since the control arm are so light it is unsafe just to do the balljoints still in order to replace the control arm you dont need to compress any springs just take it apart and put a new one in.

Dexron-III is what's used in almost all vehicles (except some older fords and chryslers), but you can check the owners' manual to be sure (or call the nearest Nissan dealership).

You will have to remove it and replace it with a new one. The general steps for doing that is: 1)remove the tire 2)remove the caliper and rotor 3)remove the outer tie rod from the spindle 4)remove the axle nut 5) remove the cv axle 5)remove the nut on the ball joint 6) bang ball joint out and press in a new one. Then reassembly is exactly the reverse as disassembly.

THE LOWER BALL JOINTS ARE A VERY TIGHT PRESS FIT INTO THE ARM, YOU NEED TO BUY A BALL JOINT PRESS KIT TO REMOVE THEM, BUT BASED ON MY PAST EXPERIENCE IT IS BEST TO JUST REMOVE THE LOWER CONTROL ARM AND HAVE A MACHINE SHOP PRESS THEM OUT AND THE NEW ONES IN, IT IS VERY EASY TO DISTORT AND RUIN THE CONTROL ARM DOING AN "ON THE CAR REPLACEMENT", THE BALL JOINT PRESS KIT RUNS ABOUT $50-$200 DEPENDING ON THE MAKER AND THE QUALITY, TRY WWW.HARBORFRIEGHT.COM TOOLS FOR AN ENTRY LEVEL KIT.

You can pick up an entire re manufactured axle assembly at your local auto parts store. In order to replace the assembly you will need to disconnect the tie rod end and the ball joint. Remove the spindle nut. Push the axle stub out of the hub. Now with a suitable container under the axle to catch spilled fluid pry the axle from the transmission housing. Install is the reverse of removal. For more detailed instructions and diagrams go to www.autozone.com vehicle repair guides.
