If you are talking front drive shaft then there should be a spring circlip on the end of the splines of the shaft. This circlip has to be compressed to get the shaft out and compressed to go back in. Place the shaft back in the splines and push hard and fast to compress the clip or hold the shaft straight and hit on the end hard with a soft faced hammer

Turn knucke to remove the shaft form bearing. Place a prybar behind the inside knucke on the axle and hit with a hammer on the bar to remove the axle.

Balljoints upper &lower will not be able to complete this repair.when changing balljoints on a s/d ford you need a special tool to install the new hub seals on the axles and then install axle with this tool as well.if the hub seals are damaged the hubs will not hold vaccuum and the auto 4x4 will not work.

Clicking under the front end

Clicking noises on turns indicate excess clearance in the Constant Velocity ("CV") joints. They can make noise when worn. Replace the drive axles.

Needs struts in front

Hi there!

Awkward rather than difficult I would say.

You need Axle stands, & spring compressors, & a bar & chain, as well as usual ratchets and spanners .

Method -

Jack & support on stands. Remove roadwheel, Remove lower strut bolt, Remove bottom wishbone balljoint from hub assembly. Remove top strut mountings. Use spring compressors. Use bar & chain to lover wishbone, remove strut.

Refit new strut - Use now lower bolt& nut. Refit wishbone bottom balljoint Remove spring compressors & bolt up.

The hard part is manouvering the strut with one leg keeping the wishbone out of the way. - and refitting the balljoint straight.

If this assists you, please take a moment to rate as Fixya!
