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.

Lift the car from the ground and secure it, ask a big friend to shake the wheels and other suspension elements and you look for loose parts - see it = replace it.

Go to the auto parts store and buy a ball joint fork. You loosen the nut then put the fork between the ball joint. hit it with a hammer. be careful to not damage the boot. once the ball joint loosens up do the other side then remove the nuts.

2004 jeep grand cherokee. I am doing the rear


first. i don't know why you would have ball joints in the rear end. it is not a steering axle. don't do it. your gona get hurt. take it in and let a machanic work on it. second you don't take the shocks or springs out to replace ball joints. just the wheel assembly comes off. and yes i believe there are alighnment adjustments for the rear. but i wouldn't do that at home myself. take it in.

U-joint replacement


Yes, but the cost of the u-joints/cv-joints (both ends) plus the labor involved in swapping out the u-joints, make a good argument for just replacing the half shaft as a unit. It's a lot quicker and cleaner.

Back in the day when grease fittings where installed... Now a days when your lower ball joint needs grease you get new part. WARNING! If Ball Joint Fails loss of control will occour. Part is pressed in control arm. Do have this part checked and have mechanic show you fault.
