I need to replace the ball joints both upper & lower on both sides, I have a ball joint removal & press. I got both uppers with no problems but can't get the lower ones to budge at all, I tried...


Turn the spindle Knuckle to one side so you can hit it with a big hammer and smack the fat part of it while putting pressure on it. If this doesn't work heat and repeat. I can give you more Ideas but I don't know what your car is.

Do I replace the whole upper control arm or press new ball joint, also do I index the arm before removeall or can I just replace the arm.


Although you never said what model, 2 or 4 wheel drive and the engine size, I looked around and found this.
Both 2 & 4 wheel drive take the same ball joint &/or upper control arm. You can opt to do what ever is money wise or easier for you. Auto-zone carries both. You can press a new one in for about 30 bucks or replace the arm with the ball joint for 104. Auto-zone will lend you the press for no charge if you buy the part there. And as far as indexing, yes always. Although anytime front end components are changed a front wheel alignment should be done. The bushing bolts are your Camber adjustments.

How to remove upper and lower ball joins on a 4x4 bronco full size 1986


For Lower & Upper Ball Joint Step by Step :

For That you use a C-clamp style ball joint press to remove the ball joint from the suspension arm-note the location of the receiver cup ! For installation of the ball-joint, use the same tool when pressing the ball joint into the suspension arm-again, note the location of the receiver cup.

Step by Step :

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely, with jackstands.
  2. Remove the spindle and the ball joint assembly from the vehicle.
  3. Remove the snapring from the ball joint. Using a ball joint removal tool, remove the ball joint from the spindle. Do not heat the ball joint or the axle to aid in removal.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Torque the ball joint stud nut to 85-110 ft. lbs. for 1983-89 Ranger and Bronco II.

    Please Rate, Thank you !

It depends on exactly which ball joint of the 3 per side your changing, but here are the details.

COMPRESSION LOWER ARM & LATERAL LOWER ARM ASSEMBLIES
Removal
1. Loosen compression lower arm ball joint nut. Using steering linkage puller, separate ball joint and
knuckle. Remove nut, bolts and compression lower arm assembly. Remove dust cover.
2. Remove stay. Remove shock absorber lower mounting bolt. Loosen lateral lower arm ball
joint and knuckle nut. Using steering linkage puller, separate ball joint and knuckle. Remove nut, bolt and
lateral lower arm assembly. Remove dust cover.
Inspection
Using preload socket, ensure breakaway torque for compression lower arm ball joint is 4-22 INCH lbs. (0.5-2.5
N.m) for 2000 models. On 2001 models, breakaway torque is 22-54 INCH lbs. (2.5-6.1 N.m). Ensure
breakaway torque for compression lateral lower arm ball joint is 13 INCH lbs. (1.5 N.m). Check compression
lower arm, lateral lower arm, dust covers, and bushings for damage and wear.
Installation
To install, reverse removal procedure. Use NEW ball joint nuts. Lubricate lip and inside of dust cover with
multipurpose lubricant. Using installer, install dust cover. Check front wheel alignment.
UPPER ARM ASSEMBLY
Removal
Using steering linkage puller, loosen upper arm ball joint and knuckle nut. Remove self-locking nut. Remove upper arm and upper arm shaft assembly. Remove dust cover.
Inspection
Using preload socket, ensure breakaway torque for upper arm ball joint is 3-13 INCH lbs. (0.3-1.5 N.m).
Replace upper arm assembly when measured value exceeds specification. Check upper arm, dust cover, and
bushings for damage and wear.
Installation
1. To install, reverse removal procedure. Use NEW self-locking nuts. Lubricate lip and inside of dust cover
with multipurpose lubricant. Using Ball Joint Installer (MB990800), install dust cover.
2. Ensure upper arm shaft assembly is installed at indicated angle. Verify upper arm shaft
assembly installation. Check front wheel alignment.

Once you have the correct arm off and a replacement joint (if available, some are not serviceable and require the arm to be replaced) then you will need a press or a ball joint press to change the joint. Such as

Replace upper ball joint 2003 silverado 1500


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 need to replace the upper ball joints


Remove the upper control arms and, using a suitable press, press out the old ball joints, press in the new ones. While you are there, consider replacing in inner bushings.
Re-assemble, lubricate and align.
