If the ball joints are held in with rivits you will need to cut them out. The easiest way is to use an air chisel. Then you need only to knock them (ball joints) out of their hole in the "A" frame. Then you will just reverse the procedure to install the new ball joints. The replacement joints will just be bolt in to place. Pretty straight forward and easy. Just a little labor intense sometimes. You can do it. Good luck.

How do I replace the right ball joint on a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country?


If you want to take the easy route use the dorman-control-arm- 520-344. It cost about as twice as much as a ball joint by itself but you will not need any special tools to replace. If you just do the ball joint by itself you will need a ball joint tool to press the old one out and the new one in. Some parts store do offer free tool borrowing programs so its you call

You will need to replace the control arm with the ball joint since it is not sold separately. If one is found it will be a foreign made piece of junk and not worth using. They are weak and break

How do I replace the upper Control arms on My 1979 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I saw a replacement control arm that has the bushings and ball joints already installed. I'm trying to save the high labor cost that...


Since the new arm comes with the bushings, there is no reason to get the tool to install them. Upper arms are relatively easy to install...just a bolt out, bolt in operation as the springs aren't involved. Support the suspension under the lower control arm to take any tension off the upper arm.

Replacing a '98 Grand Cherokees ball joints


The only parts you need are the ball joints, upper and lower, a total of 4, if you need all 4. As far as tools, you'll need wrenches, a removal and installer tool, the ball joints are pressed into the control arms, and a ball joint to steering knuckle seperator tool.Without those special tools, you will never get them changed, if you do it yourself.

Ball joints???


You're not supposed to replace the uppers on a 98 ranger. They're not meant to be pressed out because its built in with the control arm as a single unit. Just buy new upper control arms and save yourself the trouble. Ford also claims you have to replace the control arm for the lowers as well, but that's BS. They can be replaced fairly easily with the proper tools.
