You can rent a ball joint tool that will remove it. Or, you can apply a little heat and use a small sledge hammer and knock it out of place. The option is yours as to how you choose to remove the part. I usually just apply heat and knock it out. Good luck.

I have a 92 accord LX. I am in need of changing the Right upper control arm. I am not sure how to go about this. Any information would be much appreciated.


Replacing the upper control arm is an easy job, you will need to remove the front wheel, open the hood, you will remove the nut on the balljoint for the upper control arm to spindle, then use a fork and hammer to sperate the two. the next step is to remove the two achor nut in the engine compartment on the strut tower area. and out comes the control arm. you will need to have an alignment done after this job to align the front end. heres a diagram to help you locate the balljoint nut and the achor nut. hope this is helpful.10_22_2011_11_10_13_pm.gif

Lower balljoint seperated from steering knuckle with the retainer bolt still in place .


I think that the factory balljoints are riveted into place, you'll have to drill or grind off the rivets to remove. Make sure your new balljoint comes with new bolts before you proceed though.

HOW TO R&I FRONT STRUT ON XJ8 AIR & ELECTRIC


Replacing them is fairly easy. First remove the wheel, loosen and remove the 18mm nut for the upper balljoint. You will need to hold the balljoint using a 5-6mm allen in the joint itself while loosening the nut and there will be tension on the upper arm so be careful, remove the two 15mm nuts for the sway bar link. Remove the T60 torx bolt for the bottom of the shock, remove the threaded air line, electrical connector and four 13mm nuts. Pull down on the knuckle while you swing the shock assembly out. You may also want to remove the caliper so the line does not stretch.

How to take off upper control arm on 96 integra


Remove tire, remove lower ball joint, remove cv shaft, remove strut, then remove upper control arm.

Ther is another way to do it but it can be frustrating, You could take tire off , remove the upper bolts in the engine bay and the upper balljoint from the car but the bracket will stay hooked around the strut, There is a thinner metal on the backside of the upper control arm that is removable but requires patience and force, then it will fall into your hands without disconnecting the strut cv shaft or lower ball joint, But you have to remember to reinstall the thin plate before reinstalling the upper ball joint

How to change hub on four wheel drive 1997 blazer


You'll need to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the axleshaft nut, disconnect the ABS sensor wire. Remove the nut holding on the tierod, and disconnect the tierod end, a Pickle Fork will help remove the tierod end and seperating the ball joints. Remove the upper and lower balljoint cotter pins and nuts, seperate the upper and lower balljoints and remove the spindle. The hub is bolted to the spindle from the back with 3 bolts. You maybe need to have the hub pressed out.

How do i replace the upper and lower ball joints on my 2000 dodge durango


Dear Balljoint Replacer.....
This is a very labor intensive repair.The specialty tools that you need will be an air (or electric) die grinder, and an air hammer.If you already have these then GREAT!!! If not then be prepared to invest in a good $500 purchase for these tools.Once you get the vehicle up in the air and the wheels off then place jackstands underneath the frame and the lower control arms on both sides.Keep in mind to keep the jack stands underneath the lower control arms at all times because your suspension will be under load.Remove the brake calipers from both sides and swing them around and out of the way.....no need to break open the brake system....just swing the caliper and whole hose assy out of the way. Once tis is done its time to loosen and remove both upper and lower balljoint nuts...after that is performed then it's time to shock the spindle with a hammer to release the balljoints from the spindle.Your balljoints will then be ready to be removed.Now you have to take your grinder and score your rivets that hold your balljoints in on both the upper and lower so the top of the rivets are ground down to the control arm.Next take a punch and hammer the rivets in a downward movement to release the rivets and you can remove each balljoint like that.
The new balljoints install with nuts and bolts.Install is reverse of disassembly If you have any questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!
