SOURCE: how to replace the lower

Ford states that you should replace the entire knuckle, however since I'm an Engineer (Mechanical and Electronic) and basically cannot stand other Engineers (they are usually full of themselves) I look at things a different way. I had the same problem and since I'm a bit lazy in my old age, I hired 2 different road mechanics to replace the ball joints on my 1998 Taurus SE. Both of them beat themselves silly with hammers to try to remove the old ones with no success. (They gave up & stated that Ithey would have to replace the entire knuckle assempby. I sent them on their way. (this was 2 seperate occasions a day apart). (they both also claimed ASE certified) The next day I went to Auto Zone, purchased the new ball joints and did it myself. After removing the hardware (nuts, snap rings, etc) I got out my air chisel. Had them BOTH out in about 3 minutes. Good luck. The entire job took me less than an hour. Good luck!!

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.

Replace lower ball joints on a 1997 taurus


If you don't have a 'Ball joint splitter'.
You won't get very far.
But, if you do. It's not too taxing a job.
Firstly you need to locate the two fixings, attatched to the subframe, under the engine.
'Crack' them off. You may need a good amount of leverage, so make sure you're in a comfortable position. (& not likely too pull your back etc!:)
But do not remove them yet,..
Then you need to locate the fixing of the ball joint on the 'hub' end, 'Loosen it a couple of turns, and whack it with a hammer. Loosen again, and repeat the process, until it's possible to remove the nut, on the joint, (& this is where the splitter is required, potentially.)
and proceed to loosen the ball joint, from the hub fixing.
Sometimes, the ball joints are ceased on,
making removal very difficult unless you have oxy-cetaline, to 'super heat' the 'hub' fixing, rather than the ball joint.
(Remember, you want to expand the correct piece of metal!)
Then, it will fall out into your hands.
And there you go.
Just make sure you take all the neccesary precautions and wear gloves, safety glasses etc.
Or if all this, sounds too risky, just remember.
It is!
Good luck with that:)
