Jack the car up using the frame so the wheel hangs. Grab the wheel at 12 and 6 o'clock and push/.pull. If a ball joint is bad the wheel will move. Any movement in the wheel means replacing the ball joint. While you have the car up, check the tie rod ends by doing the same thing at 3 and 9 o'clock. again, any movement means replacement.

SOURCE: How to replace uppe ball joint in Ford Crown

First make an appointment for a front end alignment which will be required after replacing the ball joint. Securely support the vehicle under the lower control arm at the outer end, the end nearest the tire. The upper ball joint is attached to the upper control arm with 2 large nuts. Under the nuts are cams with hex heads for adjusting caster and camber. Mark the position of these cams in a way that will allow you to reinstall them somewhere near the same position. Next remove the outer end of the joint from the steering knuckle an then remove the 2 nuts and both cams from the control arm end. Reinstall and get that alignment asap !

SOURCE: I have a 90 Crown Victoria. Do I need to have

This depends where you live ,but in most large meto areas you must pass the emissions test set by your state and they get this from the federal gov't.I you live hopefully some where that emissions testing are not required your vehicle should run just fine with out what your talking about,but please note that it is illeagle to take off any part of your factory emissions system.The fed's and the state are very strict on this the fine are huge ,much cheaper to fix what is broken if this is the case.The Crown Vic's mostly came with 5.0 -- 302 engines that just run forever 1 of ford's best motors they ever built.Good luck I hope this helps ya out .

Broken lower ball joint need tips on removel of the broken one and installation of new one.


It is difficult and probably not advisable to remove the broken ball joint since I think it is riveted in place, you can drill them out as the replacements come with threaded studs, and use a ball joint fork to drive it out. Most people find it is better to replace the lower control arm, it comes with a ball joint attached. You will then need an alignment.

Yes...parts should run between $30-$60 each...Complete arm is about 3X that much. You can find install instructions in just about any repair manual, sometimes even with parts. (depending on mfg) Any problems installing someone here will surely help!
