SOURCE: front upper ball joint replacement

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......

The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sorry.

Your better off have it done bt a tech because you need a press to press them out and in. Also you will have a warranty witk the work. You want to be safe messing with your steering and suspension. I hope this helps.

The ball joints on both 2wd and 4wd upper are pressed in you need to remove snap ring and using a hammer pop out the old one out this is after you seperate the upper arm from the spindle. To install the new ball joint you should use a ball joint press that you can rent at most autoparts shops

I have a 2003 oldsmobile Alero replace the wheel bearing,still had the same problem , shake really bad 30mph.


Most likely cause: Tire out of balance. Take it to Big 10 or similar and have tire balance checked.

Also consider upper & lower ball joints and tie-rod ends. If these are loose or worn, they will cause premature tire wear which will result in tire bounce that balancing cannot correct.

Get it checked out and let us know results.

Clunking sound on drivers side when turning.2001 olds aurora


usually caused be a ball joint that needs replacement or a damaged, or missing sway bar bushing, upper or lower control arms needing replacement.. If the ball joint is bad, you need to get it repaired asap since this is a very dangerous issue.

When I drive slow over bumps/speed bumps I hear a noise in the right front wheel well. The car does not seem take bumps well but seems to be better going over them at higher speeds. Shocks? Struts?...


It could be a bad Shock/Strut, Ball Joint or a bad CV Axle. Put the car on a lift and try to move the parts around to try to isolate the noise.

I have a 00 Alero. Whenever i go over bumps it


Were the strut assemblies sealed?? If not some require a little oil in before fitting to vehicle. Without this can cause the "clunk".

Could be a worn ball joint / suspension bush.

Can you grease the front end on an 04 oldsmobile alero?


Doubtful. All the manufactures put not-greaseable fittings on all the front ends now. Your only hope would be if the car had previous owners, that they changed the tie rods, tie rod ends, ball joints, etc., but if they didn't have trouble with them, it is doubtful that they were replaced. Since the car is only a 2004, the front end probably would not have needed replaced.

Is it difficult to replace the upper ball joint and any special tools required??


It is if you do not have the right tools. You will need a ball joint remover, it looks like a 2 prong fork that widens, this will seperater the ball joint form the wheel assembly. If it is not pressed in you will be ok, or you will need a bid c clamp a deep well socket to slip over the threaded pard of the ball joint, and small enough to slip though with the ball joint. to put it reverse the opperation. if it is a sealed unit you would have to take it off and take it out with a hyd press.
