    the joint is pressed in, unless you want to spend around $150 for the special tool have someone do it at a front end/tire shop, it will have to be aligned after the repair anyway.

It is also possible to buy the complete lower control arm, but again, just as the last guy stated, it does have to be aligned, You may want to get the ball joint press(special tool) from a store with a tool lending program.... Canadian Tire, Pep Boys, whatever is in your area. If you need further help just give me a shout, I'll do what I can...
Good Luck...

How do you change a front axle u-joint on a 2006 3500 dodge ram


you will have to change both sides to start with. I'm doing this on a 1996 ram 1500. first, put the truck on 2 wheel drive or neutral for traction, raise vehicle, i got a lift it's easy, remove both wheels, calipers and rotors. unlock the driveshaft nut (cotter pin) and unbolt that nut. on the inside of the hub, first mark the relation on one side between the yoke and the shaft, then, there is 3 bolts holding the hub in, remove them. next, more cotter pins, upper and lower ball joint and tie-rod end need to come out, so, unscew the tie-rod end first and seperate it with ball joint seperator. do the same for the upper and lower ball joints. seperate the spindle and the axel should come out. the rest is standard procedure to change a ball joint.
let me know if it's enough info or if you want more please.

Dont know where the upper and lower ball joints are located


If you turn the steering one way fully, looking behind the front wheel, you will see a pair of ball joints, one above the brakes, and the other below, very close to the wheel.
They are each attatched to a wishbone shaped component.The upper and lower.

You should be able to just replace the ball joints, should not need to replace the comntrol arms. Hope this helps
