SOURCE: repair lower ball joints

The front lower ball joints are pressed into the steering knuckle. Once the brake components are removed, the CV shaft nut and tie rod ends can be removed. Remove the front strut bolts, and the lower ball joint nut. Separate the lower arm from the ball joint. Once the knuckle assembly is off the car remove the lower joint snap ring and dust boot. Utilizing a ball joint press (should be able to rent from local parts store) press the joint out of the knuckle. Re-installation is naturally reverse of removal. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: upper & lower Ford Ranger ball joints replacement

Approx.$250 in parts & rest is labor. Probably 3 to 4 hrs labor at most, even at 5 hrs labor, that's $100/hr labor. It must include alignment after the repairs, correct? Not sure what your going rate for labor is in your area. Probably wouldn't hurt to call around for a second opinion& estimate just to be sure.

if you have some mechanical knowledge, it is not really difficult.  It is just time consuming.  Pick up a Haynes manual and they will give you a step by step with pics in doing this.

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

How to change the control arm on a 96 thunderbird?


UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.

Can you show me detail pictures of step by step repair of ball joint and controll arm of 1990 ford thunderbird v6 3.1 automatc


prev.gif next.gif REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Upper ball joints are not replaceable. The upper ball joint is part of the upper control arm bushing joint and is not serviced separately. If the upper ball joints are found to be defective, the entire upper control arm bushing joint assembly must be replaced. Lower Ball Joint INSPECTION
  1. Support the vehicle in normal driving position with ball joints loaded.
  2. Wipe the grease fitting and checking surface, so they are free of dirt and grease. The checking surface is the round boss into which the grease fitting is threaded.
  3. The checking surface should project outside the cover. If the checking surface is inside the cover, replace the lower arm assembly. prev.gif next.gif

I have a 97 thunderbird V8. I bought the ball joint for it but i need to know how to replace it myself. It is the lower ball joint on the passenger side.


Hi, to make the process much more simple you will need to rent, buy, barrow a ball joint press. this tool set will make the job 10 times easier. you can rent these sets from advance auto parts and return them to get all of your money back, its pretty nifty. with the tool you will be able to press the ball joint out and back in. first and foremost put the cars subframe on a jackstand so the car doesnt fall on you in the middle of the job. next remove the cotter pin out of the ball joint and tie rod nuts. then remove the tie rod end nut and remove the tie rod from the spindle, then remove the ball joint nut and separate the lower control arm by prying the control arm down, then use a bungee cord to hold the strut/spindle out of the way, then use the ball joint tool to remove and replace the ball joint. Putting it back together is just the reverse of taking it apart.

Loud squeek when hitting a bump and especiaLLY WHEN TURNING the steering wheel. when breaking car pulls to the left.


You may have bad lower ball joints.This a very common problem with theses cars .There is no way to grease them so the start to bind up after a while .If the squeak is there while turning the wheel and sitting still while doing this then suspect lower ball joints .

My trw lower ball joint came with torque specs for the mounting bolts to 15ft.lbs each.. My trw upper ball joint came with no specs for the mounting bolts which are smaller bolts than the lowers, how do i...


I've replaced many ball joints, and never used a torque wrench. Just make them tight. If yours are the type with cotter pins, then you make it tight and slip in the cotter pin.

Ball joints


first of all you will need a balljoint press and a hub nut socket then you just have to remove the lockout and hub to pull out the axle to get to the ball joint and you alway replace upper and lower at the same time.
