You have mentioned everything except the one thing that most early 89-93 tbirds had and could happen to the newer tbirds:the Strut bar bushings, although they are thinner on the later years the fact remains that they also will fail.
see if you can get the Moog brand (problem solver)

its easier to get the whole control arm and the lower one has to be pressed in. it is not and easy job if you dont have the right tools checkout rockauto.com to look at the replacement parts and to get a price on them

i am not going to lie to you on this. if you do not have a very good mechanical back ground you should not attemp this procedure your self because it could result in serious injury. it should be brought to a shop because they do have the right tools to do this. alot of the time ball joints are pressed in under extream amounts of pressure

You can replace them seperately,but they need pressed out and in. Other methods of removing and installing likely will damage control arm.

to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...
