Replace lower ball joints

I am replaceing the lower passenger side ball joint on my 2007 Chevy Cobalt LS with the FE1 suspension. I had to grind out the rivets of the old ball joint and every replacement ball joint that I find, the replacement bolts are way to big for the holes to attach it to the lower control arm. Do I have replace the whole arm as one piece?

SOURCE: how do i replace a offside front lower suspension arm ball joint

You need to get or rent a ball joint splitter, maybe $20? or so to buy.   Some parts stores (autozone does this, one reason i recommend them, but other stores may also) will rent you some tools for "free" when you buy parts there .. they take a big deposit in case  you bolt ... but give it all back for return of the tool in good condition.  
 It's easy ... if you know how to work on suspension .. if not, get a Haynes manual for your car from part store, amazon or haynes.com for around $20,  the blood and busted knuckles you save due to reading it will be worth the money ;~).

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.

SOURCE: Upper and lower ball joint replacement

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...

Mr.Mangus have you checked at all your front suspension struts,shock absorbers,or lower wishbones with bushing and ball joints? I had recently a diesel ford focus 2007 with similar case and both front wishbones were replaced due to ball joints and bushes and then sent for steering alignment. Vehicle drive excellent. Please check.

The passenger side ball joint broke and it was replaced. But the car seems to be low and hitting the trim around the tire as you turn.


No Ball Joint replacement would cause that

The ball joint is in the steering knuckle & you only
remove that & nothing to do with the coil over
suspension.

Lower balll joints to my 2002 lincoln ls are bad


You can purchase the lower ball join on ebay for around $70. The piece will simply "press in" just as any ball joint replacement would. Find a mechanic willing to do the work for you if you bring him the parts. Just go to ebay and search 2002 lincoln ls lower ball joint. It's a fairly small piece, but you'll have to have it installed by a professional. I just replaced mine...

Good luck!
